Cinderella? No, thanks!

Apr 9, 2019 - Apr 15, 2019

Performance by Motus dance company within the framework of Athens 2018 World Book Capital - City of Athens…

The performance "Cinderella? No, thanks!" by Motus dance company at the Hellenic American Union

Using the age-old tale of Cinderella as a point of departure, Motus dance company is performing an original piece of movement composition. The archetypical heroine is transformed into a symbol for challenging stereotypes, asserting her self-sufficiency without hoping for miracles or a prince ex machina.

With the support of “Athens World Book Capital 2018” of the City of Athens*, Motus dance company will give four performances at the Hellenic American Union on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, 9 April 2019, at 20:00
  • Thursday, 11 April 2019, at 20:00
  • Friday, 12 April 2019, at 20:00
  • Monday, 15 April 2019, at 20:00

Each performance will be followed by an open discussion with the audience, during which the members of Motus dance company will discuss their research and work method.
