Mos - Divadlo Ponec

Information about theatre play

The Mos production is a scenic interaction of movement, sound and image in which two dancers complete the soundtrack for a series of film scenes and moving images. Viewers can watch live the creation of this unconventional soundtrack. A fascinating multimedia spectacle that does not lack playfulness, precision or originality.

In her Mos production, Greek choreographer and dancer Ioanna Paraskevopoulou develops her research focused on the use of audiovisual tools in the field of dance. Together with his colleague and dance partner Giorgos Kotsifakis, he creates an original soundtrack for a series of film scenes and sketches live on stage using all kinds of objects and dance movements. The viewer observes this very special sound laboratory, where a fan, umbrella or suction cup become sound-generating media, and not only the visual, but above all the acoustic expression of movement and dance comes into the center of his attention.

The inspiration for Mos was, among other things, the so-called coconut effect. The name of this film production term was derived from the fact that in old films the pounding of coconut shells was used to illustrate the clatter of horse hooves.

The performance uses spoken word in English, sudden loud noises and stroboscope.

Ioanna Paraskevopoulou is a dancer and choreographer working in Athens. After graduating from the Greek National School of Dance, she studeis at the Department of Audio and Visual Arts at the Ionian University. Her work focuses on the relationship between audio-visual media and movement. She plays with possible shifts, shuffles and potential augmentation of dance and choreography. Her works have been critically acclaimed in Greece and on the international scene. With Mos, Ioanna was one of the Aerowaves Twenty23 artists.
