Best of BE – Spain. 20 OCT-09 NOV Be Festival

Betelgez by Ki Omos Kineitai (Greece, 30 min)

A dark, engrossing story of imminent danger, Betelgez is balanced on an unstable equilibrium. A star named Betelgez is on the brink of supernova. A comparison between the explosion of a star and eruptions of social unrest, a collage of short shots of commanding political speeches are broadcast in the background. The show’s four dancer-acrobats perform aerial feats of circus display. With a tangible sense of risk from the beginning, the dimly lit stage sees tensions stretched thin. Started in 2003, Ki Omos Kinetai combine dance, circus and other creative disciplines.

A 30 minute version of the show will be presented
