A QUIET VOICE
A dance-theatre performance created by Ermira Goro

Artists from all over the world interact to create a multicultural performance.



Modern practice meets traditional dance to produce an innovative, personal and unique record of experiences.

 

Following her work as a dancer and choreographer in New York City, and her collaboration with DV8 Physical Theatre,  Ermira Goro returns to Athens for this exceptional show.

 

The performance “A Quiet Voice” represents the ideal meeting place for people of different nationalities who live and work in Greece. Exploring their disparate and individual kinesthetic and musical cultures brought together in a unique ceremony of goodwill, the work casts doubt on the boundaries between ‘ourself’ and ‘the other’. A yoking together of civilizations is attempted, a proposed new global identity of parallel lives and common experience.
