Andonis Foniadakis Dance Company: Salema Revisited       

Salema Revisited, the new creation by the international Greek choreographer Andonis Foniadakis wants to honor the music and the dances of his birthplace, Crete. The Cretan dances are an inseparable part of the social life of the island and there are many variations from place to place and from one person to the next. In that context Foniadakis feels the need to offer his own perspective in terms of how tradition may exist and interact with other forms of expression, like contemporary dance, without threatening or offending the existing condition but rather in an attempt of enriching and promoting tradition to a wider audience with a sense of respect and pride. In Salema Revisited Foniadakis creates a colourful and multiform spectrum of rhythms and melodies to interpret with his own personal style the valiance, the beauty, the lyricism and the pain of the Cretan soul. 

World premiere: Megaron, Athens, 16.10.2021
