Rebetiko at ODC Theater
Renowned choreographer Yannis Adoniou draws inspiration from Greek Rebetiko music, a genre similar to the blues and Fado as it was born out of sorrow, desire and the yearnings of oppressed people seeking to adjust to a new life in a new country. Using elements of Greek folk and postmodern dance, darkness and song, Adoniou, vocalist Catherine Clambaneva and shadow theater artist Leonidas Kassapides excavate their homeland’s history to create a work that captivates the senses, set to an original score by acclaimed Greek film composer Minos Matsas.
