Machi Dimitriadou-Lindahl

Scholar and choreographer Machi Dimitriadou-Lindahl introduced her new choreography entitled “Occupations/Discoveries” on November 7th, 2008. The work is inspired by the homonymous installation by Brazilian artist Antonio Manuel, first appearing in Rio de Janeiro for the 500-year anniversary since the discovery of Brazil by the Portuguese.

The installation consists of a series of walls breached at a particular point by the artist in an attempt to convey the issues of limited visibility and segregation. This theme inspired Machi Dimitriadou-Lindahl to choreograph a piece danced by Marina Pogiatzi on Cypriot territory with music of Brazilian and Portuguese folk songs. "The walls set people apart but they also bring them together through small clefts”, explains the choreographer.

The event was organised by the Nicosia Municipal Arts Center in collaboration with the Pierides Foundation and the Pharos Trust institution, which celebrates this year its ten years of operation.
