Ermira Goro creates “Meetings” of very different (gender, nationality, body type, age, ability-wise) people in an attempt to disconnect viewers from the stereotype of a dancer with a young, muscular, trained, “perfect” body and aspiring to create a collective experience that praises diversity and redefines the notion of strength and beauty.
How does one perform  according to the particular nature of their body? How does an “uninstructed” body get transformed by a movement or a rhythm that does not belong to its everyday routine? What feelings can this almost voyeuristic identification create?

Lydia

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
