short stories (2005)
cie. toula limnaios
In »short stories«, Toula Limnaios has very consciously turned to short, simple forms. In two duets and a solo, both as distinct from each other as they are interconnected, she lays out an array of small, very personal stories. They describe the interplay of harmony and divergence, of intimacy and loss. In poetic, sometimes absurd images, the dancers examine human relationships, accompanied by Ralf R. Ollertz with the bandeon, percussion and live electronics.
»The Greek choreographer Toula Limnaios is one of those wonderful creatures, who are capable of bringing to light the entire inner workings of a person through the smallest of movements.«
Berliner Morgenpost, Andrea Philippi
»Toula Limnaios is the poet of dance.« (Tagesspiegel Sandra Luzina)
»If this were a film, they’d kiss, but it is a dance piece by Toula Limnaios and in these, things don’t happen, as would be expected. The balance of power continually shifts between the characters. Toula Limnaios uses a very fine choreographic pen, she goes into detail.«
