Chosen by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker as her “choreographer of the future” for Dance Umbrella’s milestone Four by Four campaign, Georgia Vardarou creates a solo for this year’s festival.

For this premiere, Georgia Vardarou plays with the parameters of dance by drawing on a highly personal physical language to illuminate the space between the audience’s perception and her own. Made in collaboration with visual artist David Bergé, the piece intricately overlaps image and movement, throwing up a spectrum of potential narrative readings.

“She moulds her body to many forms and dance languages … marvellous.”

“Vardarou restores the primacy of dance by inserting into the space between performer and audience — where the dance happens — an ambiguous dimension in which we can search, consciously or unconsciously, for what we desire.”
