A kind of fierce

KATERINA ANDREOU

WORK IN PROGRESS

“The frenzied hero would be the one who knows how to live the present moment in all fullness and appreciate what happens in the moment that it happens " (Giordano Bruno).
There is a question that always troubles me and that navigates the constant threshold of negotiation between autonomy and authority. Following this obsession, my work became focused on choreographies that call into question the mechanism of instant decision-making. An illusion of free will, no doubt staged, but which produces a constant diving into action. An illusion of freedom.

Kind of fierce is a solo that accepts and enjoys its solitary nature and in which everything starts with this hypothesis, personal in nature : what if audacity, in all its subjectivity, were the key to an experience of freedom? I want to play with possible contrasts in order to emancipate myself from any authority of heritage or futurity. I will invent a dance that fights against the idea of time : a dance-antidote to nostalgia, regret, fear, to fate or even to hope. A dance where everything matters and nothing is important. My own free dance.
