XYZ Outlet #13: YELP danceco. | no end, then/parergon 2 | Tuesday June 14th, 2011 from 20.00 to 21.00, strictly | Perdika 8 & Achileos, Metaxourgeio

On Tuesday June 14th, XYZ Outlet presents the performance no end,then/parergon 2 by Athens- based dance company YELP danceco.

The dance company YELP danceco. presents their new production, no end, then/parergon 2, a solo dance performed by Katerina Bella. The piece juxtaposes linear and circular considerations of time, relating to man - from birth to death - and nature where beginning and end merge into an endless time cycle.

no end, then/parergon 2, transposes us within nature’s life cycle. Place: a lake and a mountain (possibly a volcano). Time: no end, no limits, no pause but an eternal transformation.
