Duet for the National Greek Opera (2021)

Following the invitation of the National Greek Opera, Lenio Kaklea creates Blue Tits, a site-specific duet for the architecture of Renzo Piano between the acropolis and the sea. The choreographer is inspired by the behaviour of the tits that are found in the region. She choreographs bodies that defy gravity, that are bind in space and communicate with each other without obeying the rules of unison.
