The Intercultural Dance Group of the GNO Learning & Participation Department presents the performance Mesimvrines on Tuesday 30 May at 20.30 on the GNO Alternative Stage at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center. Admission will be free to the public.

The performance, which is the fruit of the creative trajectory of this season’s workshop, is an ode to Dance. Fourteen dancers of different dance identities converse with contemporary creation and find common ground through movement dance, music and the body. In Mesimvrines the dance act emerges as a transformative element that can empower the sense of belonging and acceptance.



During the period November 2022 to May 2023, the Intercultural Dance Group aimed at bringing out the particularities and aesthetic of different dance traditions while focusing on the fundamental characteristics of the dance phenomenon. Fourteen dancers of different ages and dance identities studied the traditions of Greek folk dances, African, Indonesian and Afro-American dances, hip-hop, flamenco, jazz, boogie, as well as modern dance techniques. The workshop leaders guided them through this creative path by proposing their own methodological and movement quests that have emerged through their research on the relationship between traditional and modern techniques, known as “Apogios”.
