(Greek Subtitles)
DANIEL LEPKOFF is a dancer, dance maker, improvising performer, teacher, and writer. His work looks at functional movement as a finely tuned physical dialogue with the environment and explores the form and composition of this interaction as a language for making dances. He has developed techniques based on this approach that form a dance practice as well as a research into moving and living in the world. He is known for his commitment to composing dance works that bring the process of living movement onto the stage.

AVDP in Community

AVDP in Community
As AVDP team we consider dance & video as expressive artistic tools that could also be powerful means of exploring and developing social and cultural identity.

By organizing video-dance services and activities (screenings, lectures, workshops, projects) in different neighborhoods, squares & coffee houses, AVDP gives the opportunity to the community to meet the art of videodance,  to participate in and create work that reflects their community, to develop a new language for communication and to encourage greater self esteem and confidence. They get inspired to become social innovators by using their talents towards making an artistic change in their communities. Community stays physically active and have the support of AVDP team along the way.

BODIES OF RESILIENCE (Director: Jill Woodward, Choreography: Despina Stamos)
Screening during 4th AVDP festival with free entrance to all the refugees.
In the short documentary, a diverse group of asylum seekers in Greece join with local and New York artists for a performance project. The participants improvise duets and group dances amidst ruins and graffiti in Athens, while we hear them recount painful stories of their pre-flight suffering, harrowing journeys, and reflections on Greek life during the global financial crisis and rising fascism. Physically, they explore the question of how a body can find softness and resiliency when their surrounding environment is harsh. The refugees come from Afghanistan, Albania, Bangladesh, Senegal, Tanzania, and Turkey, and include a Kurdish political prisoner, a sex trafficking victim, and victims of the Taliban. They work with collaborators from Athens and the USA in an annual performance workshop called passTRESpass. This film is a follow-up to the 2011 short documentary passTRESpass, which details the process of recruiting immigrant participants and staging a public performance. bodies of resilience is a filmed performance outside the traditional theatrical setting, but contains intimate elements of real life revealed through audio interviews. The participants provide a soundtrack of folk songs sung in their native languages, and speak in Greek.

  • Published in News
In l’Alternativa Hall Exchanges we are once again showing work from likeminded festivals to give a voice to “filmmaking with a difference” – films that combine enigma, a unique approach and an itch to experiment with an urge to rebel against the norms and make the most of the wealth of different ways of capturing and revealing reality. We are showing two programmes: one from Alternative Film/Video Belgrade and the other from Athens Video Dance Project.
