Katerina Andreou: Zeppelin Bend
• Days with event
"In a world where staying ‘grounded’ or getting ‘high’ often seem to be considered survival methods, we try out both." – Katerina Andreou
"In my ongoing research on free will on stage and its subjective nature, I explore different body practices and try to approach new skills as if they were new technologies. I keep learning in order to keep unlearning. This saturation of rigour and discipline is paired with a desire to tackle matters such as control and power structures. It helps me sort through knowledge and constitute my own personal culture. Which training for which performance? Which effort for which goal?
Zeppelin Bend, taking the name of an end-to-end joining knot that was used to moor airships, is a duo. Natali Mandila and I are putting together dances, actions and sounds that demand extreme discipline and psychedelic imagination. In a world where staying ‘grounded’ or getting ‘high’ often seem to be considered survival methods, we try out both. While seeking moments of freedom, we try to maintain a sense of realness by focusing on our bodies in the act of doing." – Katerina Andreou
