Flux Laboratory Athens: Traces (At Benaki Museum)
Flux Laboratory Athens supports Persa Stamatopoulou’s Contemporary Dance Company and the new dance production titled "Traces". 

The project is negotiating the mapping of the human imprint in space and time through a sound installation, drawing material from events of world history.

A collage of sound stimuli triggers the creation of bridges between the past and the present assembling a narrative of a world that seems to be progressing through its repetition.

Audio documents refer to moments that have defined our adulthood or have been recorded in us as narratives, redefining our relationship with memory.

Traces that are lost in the oblivion of History come back as short, standalone stories and give feedback to the acoustic installation along with kinetic action, thus complementing each other.

Through minimalistic and abstract aesthetics, two bodies scattered in space are in a continuous flow, searching and developing a dialogue with each other that allows them to interact and move along together, accompany their listening. The people present and absent, the audience and the protagonists, are setting the stage of their own story within History focusing on the echo that is left behind.

In the particular condition being build, the audience is called upon to activate first the sense of hearing, in an era when image as a medium occupies our perception of the world, the audience can bring back memories and compose their own personal images and thoughts.
