Rhezus+ Vol.2 : dance performance video reel

Rhezus+ Vol.2 : dance performance video reel

This is a short film presenting a performance reel based on the Rhezus+ Vol.2 dance project, by the Urban Dance Society. It was shot during two different dates at Alkimi theater, in Athens, Greece.

It is the second part of a trilogy concerned with Woman nature. This time, Christianna Skiada and her team approach their theme through the harsh reality and intolerable suffering of women among war and crisis refugees. This is a subject we have come to know in Greece, during the last few years, receiving large numbers of people from such countries. 

The play treats this matter in a very sensitive way, but also through a very dynamic style, which even incorporates Shaolin style Kung Fu movements. It's also important that there is no attempt to sugarcoat the whole thing; in fact, aspects of xenophobia and bigotry are definitely referenced. In general, the show had a very exciting and addictive vibe, and was quite popular; in fact the team needed to extend their dates for a few more to meet demand.

Hope this short flick manages to capture the spirit and atmosphere of the original performance! Special thanks go to Christianna Skiada and Marinos Pomonis for their great cooperation and, of course, all the dancers and other cooperators in this wonderful performance.
