Visual installation
Italian first showing



Inside was first performed in 2011 at the Pallas Theatre in Athena with 30 performers for a duration of six hours.
The original music by K. BHTA and a video by The Team are part of a work which has neither beginning or middle nor end; the continuum of the action in the familiarity of everyday life can be watched for a long as one likes, choosing point of view, duration of the observation, contemplative approach, just as one might observe a landscape.
The same series of movements repeats itself in various and infinite combinations, with an accumulation of levels, producing an interior narration, a work which designs itself as it reproduces itself, condensing and diluting itself like the geomatrical patterns of oriental vases and carpets.
Inside became a life-size HD video at the Kalamata International Dance Festival 2013.



INSIDE is a theatrical installation took place in the Spring of 2011.
A room was set inside the Pallas Theatre, in the centre of Athens.
In this room, a simple series of movements showing our daily return home was uniformly repeated by thirty performers in countless combinations and superimpositions.
The stage action began before the theatre opened its doors, and continued after the last visitor had left. The theatre was open to the public for six hours each day.
This is a six-hour, unedited documentation of the work.
INSIDE invites you to watch the action as if gazing at a landscape. It treats the theatre as an exhibition space and the work as an exhibit
Visitors are free to watch as much as they like, sit wherever they like, exit and re-enter as many times as they like.
Please set your phones to silent and keep your voices low, so as not to disturb your fellow visitors.
