Greek choreographer Anastasia Papaeleftheriadou has choreographed ‘Mirrored, me?’ being performed at Blue Elephant Theatre on the 4th and 5th November at 8.00pm.
Anastasia grew up in Northern Greece, near to Thessaloniki, and it was here she first started to learn to dance. In moving to the UK she went on to study at Kensington and Chelsea College, Lewisham College and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
Alongside her dance training, she is also a natural science graduate from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and has also studied at both Canterbury Christ Church University and Imperial College London. She now lives in London and is fascinated by the vibrant artistic community South London has, and is excited to be bringing her work here.
‘Mirrored, me?’ is a story of the self and its double, inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s play William Wilson. Two individuals play with their reflections, bridging the gap between the face and its reflection, between light and shade, between the one who is watching and the one who is being watched.
As an immersive installation it is also an architectural metaphor, suggesting that the boundaries and lines we draw within ourselves about who we are and what we can do are a perception of the mind and a result of a reflection. Mirrored, me? promises to be an engaging and pensive performance.
Tickets: £9.00 (£8.00 conc. & £7.00 Southwark residents)
