Sacred Monsters, Sacred Movement

Text: Marilou Theodoridou

The ”conversation” between two modern legends of dance, Akram Khan and Sylvie Guillem took place in Megaron Athens Concert Hall until late December, with a play called ”Sacred Monsters”.

 The spirit and discipline of classical ballet, along with leadership and the new ideas of contemporary kinesiology, were shown through a major contrast. Two super stars attempted to explore the dynamics of ballet and kathak and literally exchange experiences on stage, that left us jaw dropped.

Sylvie Guillem tried to explain us the word ”merveille” , but we had already felt likewise.

The dynamic duo offered the best Christmas spirit, and we cannot wait to enjoy them again.
