Witness the stage transform into a cinematic soundscape in this captivating audio-visual experience

Dance Umbrella is delighted to announce the first show in the festival programme for 2023. MOS, by Athens based choreographer Ioanna Paraskevopoulou, an award-winning dancer and choreographer who focuses on the interplay between movement, sound and imagery, and whose past collaborators have included DU Artist Dimitris Papaioannou.

The Festival, which will be a hybrid live / digital programme will run from 6 - 31 October, with further programme announcements to follow.

Using everyday objects: umbrellas, plungers, and of course, coconut shells, MOS evokes the movie sounds made by foley artists in the days before digital effects. The physical act of generating audio while following the film becomes energetic dance, with tap numbers turned into recordings that are looped, distorted, paused and intensified.

MOS by Ioanna Paraskevopoulou:  The Pit, Barbican -  11 - 14 October 2023
