Mourn Baby Mourn

In her solo performance Mourn Baby Mourn, Katerina Andreou offers an intimate manifesto marked by questions about grief. She emphasises that since ancient times, lamentation has generally been the reserve of women, who accompany the dead with their extreme and ritual expressions of sorrow. In this production, the dancer and choreographer turns to lamentation as a method of dealing with the sadness and frustration of our time. Mourn Baby Mourn is inspired by the concept of hauntology, popularised by the cultural critic Mark Fisher, among others. It refers to an aesthetic rooted in nostalgia and the imitation of the past, a symbol of a culture that is in a state of flux. This is a production in the form of a “distress signal, an attempt to escape melancholy by going into crash mode”.

Meeting with literature

Collaboration between a choreographer and a writer can lead to the emergence of a large number of combinations. If sometimes the choreographer creates his dance around the work of an author, the writer can also choose dance as the subject of his text.
