“Phenomena”, the first group choreography created by Vardarou, is inspired by “Hardcore Research on Dance” (2012), a solo created around the origins of her personal way of movement.
- About Georgia Vardarou
Georgia Vardarou, from Athens, lives and works in Brussels. Educated at the State School of Dance. After her graduation in 2004 she danced for the choreographer Apostolia Papadamaki and arrived in Brussels where she continued her studies at the dance school P.A.R.T.S.
After her graduation in 2008 she started working as a dancer with the choreographer Salva Sanchis (Kunst/Werk). She has taken part in several pieces by Sanchis, Marc Vanrunxt, Cecilie Ullerup Schmidt and Lance Gries. In 2012 she started the research project “Hardcore Research on Dance” which resulted in a short solo that toured in festivals in Europe. In response to that piece, both Marc Vanrunxt and Salva Sanchis each created a short solo for her. Together with “Hardcore Research on Dance” these three solos were presented as a single solo under the title “Trigon”.
Continuing with the same kind of research and questions as in her solo about personal movement and the eloquence of the language of dance, she created “Phenomena”.
Together with the sound artist Stijn Demeulenaere and Marisa Cabal Cabeza (Busy Rocks), they then created “Sonic Theaters”, a performance for public spaces based on the listening experience of binaural microphones.
She is currently working as a dancer with Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker for the last creation of Rosas “Golden Hours (As you like it)”.
