Event Description:  CHANGING LANDSCAPES + THE SPACE CADET Flux Laboratory Athens celebrates the World Space Week Seminar | Interviews | Artist Residency It is with great pleasure that Flux Laboratory Athens announces the celebration of World Space Week. For the first time in Greece, an art institution commemorates World Space Week through a multifaceted agenda, at the heart of which movement/dance research and science are inextricably involved in a fascinating dialogue. This Autumn, Flux Laboratory Athens has invited as artist in residency the Greek researcher and choreographer Chloe Aligianni to deploy her practice, by opening up a dialogue between art, science and audience, while stimulating curiosity about the cosmos in relation to the planet we call ‘home’. Aligianni looks for methodological intersections in the research process between disciplines and highlights the creative nature of both fields. On the 10th of October, Aligianni along with scientistAthanassios Akylas are leading a seminar on the exploration of the extraordinary environments of the black hole. The seminar titled ‘Changing Landscapes’ consists of an accessible movement & science lab on the components of the black hole, its properties of light, spacetime and the liminal area of the event horizon. It is addressed to students, dancers, amateur astronomers, scientists, artists and everyone interested in learning about current issues in the field. ‘Changing Landscapes’ will be followed by a series of in situ interviews with distinguished experts (astrophysicists, mathematicians researchers, dance critics etc.) during September and October 2020. The material collected will lead to a short documentary about Aligianni’s research process thatwill be screened alongside her upcoming project ‘Space Cadet’. From the 16th of November until the 13rd of December ‘Space Cadet’ is taking over the space of Flux Laboratory Athens, featuring an installation and dance performances. The project looks at the poetics of space exploration through the astronaut experience. With the use of movement, light and sound, the performance space and performers are constantly transported into places and cover large distances, while staying in a seemingly confined space. World Space Week and this year’s thematic “Satellites improve life” is an opportunity to revisit dance and the physical body as a new frontier of exploration. The body itself constitutes the perceptible boundary of our existence, the medium by which we perceive and interact with the environment. We are joining the greatest space celebration on Earth with an artistic initiative that welcomes dancers, scientists and people who aren’t part of the space community to be amazed at the potential of space.
