Lui and Artemis workshop and performance, Dance House, Cardiff

Type of Event: Dance Workshop

The eMOTIONal Body is a series of workshops and performances, hosted by NDCWales and themed around performances of Lui & Artemis by Prototype Status from Switzerland.

Their piece, Lui & Artemis, is interpreted by Artemis Sacantanis and Peter Jolesch, both over 65 and former soloists from the Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz and Bayerisches Staatsballet in Munich.

The performance explores the paradoxical journey of an older couple, who feel younger at heart in their now worn-out bodies than they could have ever been during their first embrace. Their minds are turned towards the past and the future at the same time, whilst their bodies are stuck in the present moment.

Artemis and Peter will lead the workshops which focus on simple actions connected to our own experiences. They will also explore exercises and improvisation games which have been used as tools to find the choreographic material of the duet.

'Having seen several of Jasmine Morand’s creations I have been particularly struck by Lui & Artemis. Both performers are mature artists who have enjoyed successful careers as professional dancers; this duet oozes honesty, beauty and sensitivity. I was excited to invite the company in conjunction with our Gwanwyn festival celebrations and to enable them to also share their process with others through workshops in collaboration with Age Cymru.' Caroline Finn – Artistic Director NDCWales.
