Age of Crime
Paris-based choreographer Lenio Kaklea has been commissioned by the Athens Festival to create Age of Crime, on the occasion of the Greek War of Independence bicentennial. The artist encourages us to observe the official narratives that shaped national memory. The artist draws on vampire figures in order to comment on how customs and rituals build a kind of imaginary community. Based on first-person Ottoman narratives of the Greek War of Independence, she reveals how a nation seemingly cleansed from the influences of the Ottoman occupation is, in fact, fraught with tension.
