"Sync" is an invitation to experience the ephemeral beauty of togetherness. Moving from the simplicity of human touch to fluid interactions, nine dancers sway back and forth, forming and deconstructing a succession of tableaux. Hypnotic and meditative, "Sync" enables spectators and performers to synchronise their senses and gazes and to ask themselves: what keeps us together?
Anastasia Valsamaki is a choreographer and contemporary dance performer. She graduated from the Greek National School of Dance (KSOT) in 2015 at the age of 23. Since 2016, she has attended the International Choreographic Exchange Program at the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance, with the aim of deepening her choreographic research and practice.
In 2015 she created Sharing Moments, a piece for 12 dancers where she explored the notion of energy and individuality within the group while experimenting with the motion of spinning tops.
In June 2016 she made her debut as a young choreographer with Sync. She also choreographed and performed the duet Rapport as part of the collective performance Sextet.
She is currently working on a new creation with SEAD students that will be presented as part of the New Faces New Dances Festival 2017 in Salzburg.
