solo performance

[OBLIVION] is a dance-theatre stage composition (solo performance) based on the poetry collection [ lambda theta ] by Christina Kyriazidi. It is the second part of the trilogy RED / OF OBLIVION/ BODY, a collaboration between the Greek poet and performer Christina Kyriazidi, and the Icelandic composer Smári Gudmundson. The trilogy is about WOMANHOOD, and explores all aspects and problematics of female identity - archetypal, ontological, sexual, political and social.

[OBLIVION] deals with the pandemic of oblivion and how it affects contemporary women. Through fragments of stories of different women at the very moment when memory abandons them, we witness the chronicle of a silent lament. However, it is a noisy silence, full of memory leaps, from which women's voices emerge: victims of femicide, domestic and state violence, refugee experiences, and abandonment. A series of women meet briefly and fragmentarily just before sinking into oblivion.

The performance is based on poetry and prose texts by C. Kyriazidi with additional references to K. Cavafy's "Polis" and J. Cocteau's "Human Voice”.
