«Baroque music is solid and lyrical, sensual and mysterious, but I want music to set me free. For this work I am trying not to use the Baroque and contemporary music differently. They have the same breath and the same rhythm- say Foniadakis- They seem different, but that is only due to the colour of the sound. I am not illustrating the music, and I am not basing the dance around the strong beats. I am not choreographing on top of the music but rather inside the music, using both the horizontal surface of the floor and aerial spins on the vertical plane. I created the piece on the basis of a struggle between, a search for the beauty of the past, intended as a sort of nostalgia, and on the other, the present day situation: an agitated, dynamic, uncertain and violent reality». (Andonis Foniadakis)
