Sinopsis: ”Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” - Viktor E.
Frankl A triptych journey in search of a tension capable of restoring the fragmented nature of a “continuity constantly receding”. A physical and emotional experience of entering the “unknown” where discomfort and risk shape each response to external or internal stimuli. A process where music and movement are subject to a constant procedure of deconstruction and reconstruction.
Bio: Fenia Kotsopoulou is a Greek cross-disciplinary artist based in the UK, whose practice encompasses performance art, dance, video and photography. She holds a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Lincoln, and a BA in dance from the National Dance Academy in Rome. She draws her inspiration from everyday life experiences, encounters and events, considering everything as possible source of inspiration, from the mundane to the extraordinary. Pivotal topics of her rhizomatic practice include: the body as a site of transformation and as the repository of emotions; personal and collective memory; performing documentation and alternative uses of archives; formation and deconstruction of (female) identity. In the past few years, as (dance) performer, producer and visual practitioner, her works and the work of close-collaborators have been shown at a wide array of festivals and art platforms, encompassing the fields of dance, experimental performance, live-art and video-art.
