An intriguing choreographic project, Antonis Foniadakis’s “Prec(ar)ious Collectives”, takes place in a few days in Athens. Presented by the Swiss Foundation and the Fluxum Culture Center in collaboration with the French research workshop of the Palais de Tokyo, and positioned somewhere between an art exhibition and a performance, the project runs from April 6-12, at the historic 23, Acadimias Avenue. Artists from the Palais de Tokyo, working with choreographers from the Greek dance scene , question the notion of community as a site- and time-specific context, without approaching it as a theoretical construct to be developed or explained.
Athena Deligiannis, Fluxum Foundation and Laboratory’s Project Manager, noted: “Parallel to the documenta 14 exhibition,we are organizing an event with 6 artists from the Palais de Tokyo Art Residency, and 8 choreographers under the supervision of Antonis Foniadakis, director of the Greek National Opera ballet. Having a special sensitivity in regards to Greece, our Foundation’s desire was to give Greek choreographers the opportunity to cooperate with a world-renowned artistic center, like the Palais de Tokyo. In 2016, we had in the same manner produced Denis Savary’s ‘Lagune’ at the National Museum of Modern Art”.
