Samir Calixto / Korzo
SEEKER※SOLO promises to be one of the most intimate and personal works of Samir Calixto to date. In this solo, which is also his farewell to Korzo as his home base after 10 years, he dances this journey himself. In this piece he embodies an endeavour pursued by many: the quest for truth as an antidote against the false sense of reality reconstructed by mankind.
'A work with a strong visual, emotional and sensory stratification'
He takes the music of George I. Gurdjieff and Thomas de Hartmann as the heart of the performance. With these often meditative compositions - which originate from Eastern melodies heard in monasteries in the Middle East and Central Asia - he conjugates the vision where scientific limits and ancient knowledge are touched by spirituality. While drinking from this inspiration, SEEKER※SOLO will tackle the core of Calixto’s work: a look upon human beings as part of a larger scheme, and as beings that through will and watchfulness are capable of realizing their full potential, searching through the ways of the body to achieve deeper knowledge. Joined by visual artist/light designer Pavla Beranovà and assistant Quentin Roger, SEEKER※SOLO is a work with strong visual, emotional and sensorial layers. A solo of profundity and simplicity in which movements are the pathway to the most essential in us.
