Omen of Fάrιsa – Danae and Dionysios


Sitting on top the horse’s back, sleep took me over and the mountains laughed. It has been forever since the first day yet we walk, carrying the weight of the memories our ancestors left. Kings and Queens, beggars and thieves, are masks that we wore to survive the dream. Is the sun burning my face? or it’s just a cold breeze? That cleansing my face from the unforgiving sin. Now the nightmares have gone hearing David’s song and I can rest into peace. I swear to the bird and I swear to the tree that I won’t stop walking until I find the sea.

Omen of Fárisa is a duet that was created for outdoor spaces in the context of the Pilgrims actions. The work follows two characters’ need for connection and contact as they remain constantly in close intimacy. It is inspired by the notion of pilgrimage as a simulation of a journey through life, animals, and natural landscapes. How can two separate trajectories meet and travel together? How can relationships interact and support each other? How can the hierarchy of humans and animals be broken?

Danae and Dionysios

Danae and Dionysios have been collaborating since 2015. As apprentices of nature, its animals and indigenous civilisations they create stories from the side of the one who was or still is untamed. Ιn their creations they propose harmonic relationships between nature and its living beings, while the dreamlike atmosphere which usually wraps their work becomes a conversation between chaos and order. Trying to balance between accessible and pioneer, they support the idea that art is a universal medium of communication which can create a dynamic yet fragile language. Together, they created their first production “UNCIA”, which has been touring internationally, counting more than 55 performances in 11 countries and has received 8 awards around Europe. Later, they created the full evening show “ATMA”, which has been touring in Europe, Asia and Latin America and “Free At Last”, which was created under the production house of Theater Rotterdam. In 2021, supported by the Athens & Epidaurus Festival, they created a new version of “Free At Last” – “Free At Last: Rerooted” which premiered in Athens, Greece. Their latest production “Valley of the Hummingbirds” was commissioned by Staatstheater Braunschweig and premiered in Germany in February 2022. At the same time, they create projects for postgraduate programs and professional dance schools such as “FRE3 Bodies” in Barcelona, “PERA GAU” in Kyrenia and “EPDCYL” in Burgos, while giving workshops around the world.

The event is finished.
