Untitled #1




The Untitled series (#1-#5) are dance pieces created collectively by choreographers Iris Karayan, Maria Koliopoulou, Mariela Nestora, Katerina Skiada and Kostas Tsioukas.
The choreographers have been creating works of different styles and aesthetics and methods independently over the past years. Their work has been primarily funded by the Greek Ministry of Culture and has been presented in Greek and European festivals.
This project was instigated by Mariela Nestora and these choreographers were brought together on the grounds of quality and difference rather than similarity. The common ground is that they are Greek, based in Athens.
The Collective Choreography Project -Untitled series is an experiment of collectively choreographing of a solo, in which 4 choreographers choreograph and one is performing, taking turns until all of the choreographers have been the performer.
The project’s intentions are to question whether different movement languages and processes coexisting lead to a new ways of creation, to share methods, to create a framework in which a creative dialogue between artists develops and to observe whether and how this experience affects the work or methods of each choreographer individually.
