Beauty is Nature’s memory of Eden
T. C. Henley
Founded in 2010, the Athens-based Jukstapoz group has performed at festivals and theatres around the world. The group’s choreographic style is strikingly cinematic and borrows from physical theatre. The Art of Dying, a solo piece inspired by Hieronymus Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights, conveys the fragility of human existence through subtle humour and surrealism. Dance, multimedia and live music will capture the transient beauty of that final moment before life comes to an end. The performance examines the procedures of 'dying well'. Within a garden where both decay and life reside, the protagonist builds a landscape full of microcosms of both joy and corruption. Award-winning lutenist Jozef Van Wissem will perform his own music live. The New York-based Dutch minimalist musician won the Soundtrack Award at the Cannes Film Festival for the film Only Lovers Left Alive.
