Saltator Physical Dance Group and the music band EleKtroBalKana have studied and experimented with issues regarding the role of tradition in contemporary society and the reasons that we can observe a return to it, even by people of a young age. During the rehearsal we were taught traditional dances from different regions of Greece and then we tried to understand their steps and transfer them in our own way through contemporary dance to the present, improvising in parallel with the musicians. One characteristic of the performance is that it takes place in the light of day. Specifically, it starts one hour before sunset. We don't need a floor made especially for dancing and at the end of the choreographed part the dancers dance with the spectators and the spectators with each other.
