The Impostor’s Syndrome

The Impostor’s Syndrome is a bespoke site specific intervention devised for the 22nd Kalamata International Dance Festival. It featured within the series of public space interventions transitions.

Three individuals challenge the border between reality and dream during a bus ride in the city, aided by text, storytelling and music.

Concept/ Direction: Thanos Polymeneas Liontiris
Created with and performed by: Nikos Ioakeim, Nikos Karydis, Alexis Kotsopoulous

 

This performance is one of the experiments of a larger scale practice-based research on interactive music theatre.

 

transitions

transitions is a series of performance interventions occurring on the local bus-line no. 1 (route: Kalamata-Paralia), as part of the 22nd Kalamata International Dance Festival‘s Parallel Events.

Performers mingle with passengers in a very specific part of the public space, the bus, transforming an everyday-life setting into pleasantly unfamiliar situations. Passengers are invited to experience these surprising shifts of reality, a kaleidoscope of oneiric diversions from the daily routine.

During transitions anything could happen, a normal bus ride from and to the beach could become a jazz concert or a dance performance.

transitions happened on 15th, 16th and 17th July 2016, in between 14:00 and 15:00, on buses of local line n.1, in both directions. transitions took place with the kind support and participation of the Municipal Conservatoire of Kalamata and of the 22th Kalamata International Dance Festival.
