ITHACA, a performance by Dimitris Paganos Koukakis and Maria Tsingistra.
Ithaca symbolizes our journey, the journey around our experiences, the customs deeply rooted within us but also, the exploration around cultures, ideas and people. This is the inspiration for our performance, our point of view through dance and music by Bartok, Shostakovich, Ung and Terrazas.

iii. ...Roar, lion of the heart...
iv. ...laughter passes over the earth...
v. Space between the fish and the moon
