Compagnie Retouramont – Aerial Dancers

With an impressive show, “The Dance of the Caryatides” is a dance performance that takes place in the air, in front of the Pafos Castle. An explosive, playful production that, using motion, lights and sound, changes the perspective of the historic building. The show has been designed by the Compagnie Retouramont specifically for Pafos Castle as part of the Travellers of the World thematic. Fabrice Guillot, artistic director of the French team, created a fascinating choreography, as it takes place in heights, thus exploring new fields of expression (and existence, and presence, and movement) between buildings and bodies. The team has collaborated with famous choreographers and dancers, as well as artistic and cultural institutions and has performed in places of particular interest. The kinesiology governing the dancers’ maneuvers in the air connects vertical dance with moves that point to acrobats, in a game that radically changes the image of the space in which it takes place.

With the support and cooperation of the French Institute of Cyprus.
