THE FALLING OBJECT

About the performance

The Falling Object is a subtle confession that takes place at the intersection of dance, performance and object theatre. A child’s drawing with a small smoking cylinder on it unfolds family archetypes and constructs the main character of The Falling Object – a falling body constantly seeking to be desired until it suddenly stumbles on its own personal desires.

Barbara Bardaka studied at SEAD (Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance) where she discovered her passion for creativity, improvisation, performing and research. She followed in the footsteps of teachers who inspired her by building her own journey around improvisation. She has been invited to residencies in Greece and abroad while also participating with her own creations in initiatives by Kinitiras, Dance Days Chania, Dance Laboratory Rhodes, et al. As a performer she has collaborated with João Cidade and Ioulia Zacharaki, among others. She is currently developing and teaching a method of improvisation for dance professionals and non-experts alike, known as KYS: Practice into Performance.
