Fragments of Experience - (documentary about PTOSIS)

short documentary

November 12, 2013

"Fragments of Experience" is a series of video documentaries that Fenia did in order to encapsulate the choreographic process of "PTOSIS" and help it find a new life. PTOSIS (2013) was a choreographic process, conceived and facilitated by Pavlos Kountouriotis during a two week 24/7 residence at SOZO Visions in Motion (Kassel, Germany), directed by Deborah Smith-Wicke. Fenia worked as choreographer assistant and videographer/photographer.


This video documents only some tiny fraction of the work and functions both as a historical record and as a new artwork itself.

A quirky dance performance of two haunting ghost bodies and their fragmented parts. After almost seven years of not having perfomed together, Fenia and Pavlos revive on stage the past that has been lost, the photos that were never taken, the performances that never happened, the music that we never danced to, the something that you wanted to watch desperately but you missed it out.


Performance / Choreography : Pavlos Kountouriotis & Fenia Kotsopoulou

A "Dancewalk" is a site (un)specific dance performance through the city organized by Pavlos Kountouriotis.


Score: Dance Walking combines three of our favorite things:
1. Interacting with people
2. Seeing the city
3. Dancing


The idea is that we all have our mp3 players that we synchronize on a 1 hour tracklist (dance compilation) and we walk and dance together through the city. Fenia with her camera is there to dance, bounce and film the experience.


A score inspired by Ben Aaron who has developed what he calls..DANCE WALKING FITNESS
