Tēthýs is a
contemporary contortion solo that delves into the discovery of origin and destination.
Drawing from an earlier dance solo “Metamers” created in 2022, this work was conceived
between the shore and the sea in Mount Pelion, Greece in the summer 2022.
Considering mythology and archetypes relating to human-animal hybrid existence
and extending into the depths of the underwater world, Tēthýs dives deeper in
the initial research in exploring the human journey
through the life-death cycle. Embracing the unknown of the ocean, the only
constant question is: who are we really? A journey of erosion, transformation
