For their latest piece, “Stones and Bones”, RootlessRoot worked with the English sculptor Peter Randall-Page to create a performance about the transience of human existence. White marble – a material with metaphysical dimensions that constitutes the bedrock of European civilization – lies at the core of the work, even though its natural place lies inside majestic mountains, far outside theater convention.

In “Stones and Bones”, four female performers – dancing to an original score by Vassilis Mantzoukis – carve out a poem about the fragile nature of human existence and the need to leave our mark on the world.

RootlessRoot

Taking the body as both their point of departure and their terminus, Linda Kapetanea and Jozef Frucek seek to expand their personal movement style with every choreographic venture. Not satisfied in taking a purely “dance vocabulary” approach to their work, they focus their attentions on what can be expressed through movement, on presenting emotional worlds, on theatricality, and on instinctive communication on stage. The company’s movement principles have been developed through a process of exchange and incorporation involving materials of varied origin: everything from martial arts and acrobatics through to contemporary dance. Since 2005, the company’s 27 works (solos, art / movement installations, medium- and large-scale performances) have been presented in more than 24 countries around the world.

RootlessRoot collaborated with Akram Khan on his dance solo “DESH”, and have also worked with the Staadsteater Kassel Tanztheater, DOT504, the Helsinki Dance Company in Finland, as well as many other companies and artists. In Greece, their works have been presented at the Athens & Epidaurus Festival, Onassis Stegi, the Greek National Opera, the Dimitria Festival, the Kalamata International Dance Festival, and the Arc for Dance Festival. Internationally, they have appeared at such major theaters as the Grande halle de la Villette, Sadler’s Wells, and St. Gallen, to name a few. Four of their stage productions – “Eyes in the Colors of the Rain” (2011), “Kireru” (2012), “Europium” (2015), and “Stones & Bones” (2020) – were co-produced by Onassis Stegi, which also supports the company’s touring. Since 2006, they have been developing the Fighting Monkey practice, which takes a dynamic approach to human movement/development and healthy aging, and is taught by them at schools around the globe.
