Kimisis - Falling Asleep
WHAT: Kimisis depicts the ‘falling asleep’: the death and assumption of Mary - mother of Christ - into Heaven.
Influenced by the traditions of the Greek Orthodox Church, Koukias translates this religious occasion into a secular and highly contemporary experience.
Byzantine and Christian Arabic music clash with electronic sounds; and the soprano, Irene Sarrinikolaou, singing in Ecclesiastical Greek, performs on a Pilates Trapeze machine.
The ritualistic elements, visual design and dramatic staging combine to make this a universally moving and deeply immersive performance.
Creating highly memorable music theatre and opera, IHOS productions blend voice, dance and sound with installation art and digital technology. Kimisis exemplifies the brilliant originality for which IHOS is internationally renowned.
