Dance in Cities of the Region of Peloponnese



About the performance

In our search for simplicity, we find complexity. In Hito, two friends, Akira Yoshida and Chey Jurado co-exist in search of a simple life, a quest that alternately brings them closer together and further apart.


Free entrance to all side events performances.

Within the framework of the Festival’s outreach programme in the Peloponnese entitled DANCE IN OTHER CITIES which is implemented in collaboration with the Peloponnese Region.
