In her choreographies, Xenia Koghilaki looks for a “radical aliveness” usually reserved for punk concerts. But the fact that even this ritual of supposed total anarchy foots on “invisible solidarity rules” stays at the forefront of her mind: in order to let go, we hold onto one another. In Slamming, the Berlin- and Athens-based choreographer and her co-performers Irina Georgiou and Noumissa Sidibé form a three-headed, six-armed crowd, letting us take part in their collective exertion. Between anger and sweat and pain and pleasure, the three of them keep rearranging their grip, they lose and find each other, following Giorgios Poulios’ haunting sounds down into the depth of a feeling that is both certainly alive and impossible to name.

Slamming is supported in touring by ONASSIS STEGI’s Outward Turn Program.
