UKYA City Takeover Alumni Konstantina Skalionta is performing her exquisite work Land(e)scape at OH Creative Space in London on Friday 14, Tuesday 18 and Friday 20 of June. Konstantina performed this work at Dance4 as part of our Nottingham City Takeover and it was truly a highlight of the week! If you’re in/around London, we recommend you go and see this!

Land(e)scape tells the story of someone who is displaced and trapped in a foreign, cold and windy land. Can one find home in a hostile place? What does ‘home’ mean and where can we find it? 

You are invited to share a journey through different landscapes, mindscapes and emotions in search of a new home. During the performance you will be directed to close your eyes, lie down, adjust your stance or walk in the space in order to experience parts of it. You are free to decide to which extent you would like to follow these directions and therefore choreograph your own journey in the performance.
 
At the end, you will be invited to rest in the space, draw or write, as well as examine drawings made as part of the creative process.

The performance developed with support by iC4C Dance4 (Nottingham), the NN Contemporary Art (Northampton), the Dance House Limasssol (Cyprus), the Egomio Cultural Centre (Cyprus) and the London Contemporary Dance School.
