Boiling-Freezing-Melting point is a piece based on human behavior. Watching people live within a system, in a highly competitive society, we can discern that people pass through different roles every day. The same person exercises power or is under the power of others depending on the situation or on what the consequences of those circumstances might be. How do people interact when power is changing faces and forms? What happens when the oppressed becomes the oppressor? We have looked at how this could be a domino effect under the common term of power, shaping and (re)defining whole societies.

”Over-Under” is our new project. The premiere is going to be in Cyprus-Limassol at the 11th platform of contemporary dance on 13 of March 2011. We will be happy to see you there, you are all wellcome!


An employee in a company. A mother within a family. A man who walks his dog.
These are common examples of the various roles we impersonate in our everyday life.
But, how do these different personae interact when the exercise of power changes hands and takes different forms?
What happens when the oppressed becomes the oppressor?
Under different circumstances the boundaries of control seem to blur, yet are we still left with a freedom of choice? Can we really resist?Abuse of power: do we tolerate it or is there a breaking point?
In a similar way, how do we behave when it is our turn to exercise power?
This is a chain reaction of consequences, resulting from the prevalent notion of power and control which changes hands, takes different shapes and (re)defines whole societies.
