Christos Papadopoulos - Leon & the WolfElvedon

Play video

Elvedon flows forwards driven by precise rhythm and slinky, shifting movement patterns. A wrinkled harmony is created by the six dancers as their vibrating bounces and subtle micro-movements build into a solid, but fluid whole image. Inspired by Virginia’s Woolf’s The Waves, Elvedon distils the intertwined narratives of the book into an essential meditation on the passing of time.
