Abstract

The modern dance group Aerites, presents, in a world premiere, its new work, entitled U(r)topias. On the occasion of the bicentenary of the Greek Revolution, the Aerites wish to refer to modern utopias. The Greek Revolution was a utopia that came true 200 years later. Today it seems unthinkable to us. So, having as its axis utopia and its components, the work seeks to discover these ideas, but based on the knowledge of the past. And at this point, utopia becomes ur-topia. The prefix ur- – which means ancient, primitive, original – symbolises the goal of defining a new utopia, but which visits our history. Thus, in the work, the Aerites, discover pieces and fragments of the old, and project their own ideas in order to reinvent new ways of fighting and resistance.
