evangelos poulinas


bright future

"Bright Future" is a contemporary dance performance created by the choreographer and performer Evangelos Poulinas in collaboration with the dancers. The piece is developed on our ideas about the future and our expectation of it. It also deals with our preoccupation with the future and whether this preoccupation affects the present. What is the need that leads us to design and try to control our future. How can we come to terms with the unknown and to be able to enjoy it? The performers will seek absolute perfection, they experience the limits of their physicality, they will explore what ideal could be in different situations. Wander through situations of success, greatness but also disappointment as well as conflict with themselves and those around them.
