The Way Back
Performance - Concept: Ioannis Karounis (2017 - 2022)
The performer deliberates himself from personal worries, he does it in such a way that his perception e.g. of a sunset, is the same whether he observes it sitting in the cell of a prison or in a meadow. This blessing of perception irrespective of volition is the one that dresses the past and the distant with a magical glare, and showers them with complementing light.
"I observe the massive moving of populations of the last years and I realize that my city is a passer-by point or a station for millions of passing by immigrants. I begin the ceremony at the center of my city, in Omonoia Square. I sympathize with the spectators and I am anxious for the passers-by. I'm looking for a destination to break free, to be reborn.
Ioannis Karounis follow the curves of the square and create underground and on the ground routes.
