Krótki rzut oka na trzy greckie obrazy choreografii
MetadataShow full item record
The word “choreography”, if we try to dissect it, contains two words. Two words but also somehow two things. Dancing and writing. I would like, from this perspective, to look at the three Greek images of the stage. The first picture is a labyrinth, the famous mythical Cretan building, which likes to appear in myths as the dance floor. The second picture is a spectacle prepared for the Olympic gods by Hephaistus, in which the lead roles were brilliantly played by Aphrodite with Ares, the third picture taken from the Euripides’es Bacchae and he is in my sense the brace of the whole story, is a painting in which dance and writing are facing each other as deadly enemies. The choreographer, the one who sets the stage, also establishes the central place of the state. Therefore, I would like to see in the choreographic act the founding and, in a strict sence, political action. If man is, as Aristotle said, a political animal, in this act in which polis derives from the mythical past, in which the gods and heroes depart, or otherwise, in which the gods and heroes occupy the spheres given them by the Republic, in this act of establishment I would like to look through the stage not only in the nature of dance, but also in the nature of man.
