About the venue

Dock 11

The factory level of Dock 11 in Kastanienallee in Prenzlauer Berg is a rehearsals room, teaching studio and dance stage in one. The stage programme has interdisciplinary supplements such as theatre, performance, literature, music, visual art, film and club art – however the main focal point of every performance is on purely dance elements. Together with its other premises in EDEN***** in Berlin-Pankow, Dock 11 has established itself as an important part of the Berlin dance scene. The unique combination of teaching, rehearsal and stage generates an exciting change of perspectives in both the artists and pupils, as well as among the audience.  (source: visitberlin.de)

About the performance

RUPTURE persephone

'RUPTURE persephone' is a physical theatre solo work, which deals with issues such as the separation and the division of an existence, the pain of personal or forced exile, societal oppression and restrictions. Its symbol of movement between two worlds, between Heaven and Earth, between the living and the dead, a shift between light and darkness An agonizing, asphyxiating cry in a toxic land, revealing a labyrinth of choices inside the landscape of a human.

"My personal development as an artist and individual has been affected by the evolution of ideas about female identity and in general the female figure through the past decades. For the last eight years I have been developing works which examine a wide range of issues such as individuality, duality, oppression, ambivalence and the restrictions of the female in our social –political framework." (Athanasian Kanellopoulou)
