Internationally acclaimed performance artist Eliza Soroga focuses on the representations of the ‘unfamiliar’ and the transformation of daily life into performance art. In March 2017, Soroga was the overall Winner of the 11th Arte Laguna Prize in the category Performance & Video Art for her work Women in Agony. Roots weaves cinematic and stage narration together. The first part of the performance consists of a documentary depicting the daily life of three elderly women living on their own in remote villages of Epirus (Milia village, Mourgana range); the artist hails from that very area. In the second part of the performance, the all-female polyphonic group of the Ano Deropolis village and the polyphonic chorus Chaonia come to the stage to share their personal stories with the audience and turn these stories into songs. A celebration of inner female strength through an innovative blend of traditional and avantgarde styles.
