An explosive, impulsive and percussive movement in which the artist duets with a tuned machine. In autumn 2020, Katerina Andreou met Voltnoj Berge, a man who lived through the transformation of the (sub)urban music scene in Athens from 1989 onwards. This scene was later influenced by the rave culture of the US and England and driven by house and techno music. Too young to participate in the excitement of these spontaneous encounters, Andreou decided to immerse himself in the stories, books and music shared by Berge. At the same time, he conducted his own research into this mainly acoustic movement. Myths and rumours immediately took hold of the reality of this underground scene, which, according to the choreographer, deserves to be approached more physically than mentally.
Filled with nostalgia for an era she did not live through, Andreou has created Rave to Lament: a fleeting, unique and impulsive movement that, rather than looking to the past, seeks to be part of the present.
