Photo Exhibition: “Ten”
by Mike Rafai

52 portraits of the dancers who participated in the 24th Kalamata International Dance Festival 2018, “Ten” minutes after the end of their performance. The dancers’ faces convey the effort, satisfaction, fatigue, and relief that follows the show’s completion, together with so many other enigmatic thoughts and feelings. This is a deeply human moment, away from the stage lights, when the dancers have accomplished their missions. At the same time, these portraits constitute an unusual archive of the Festival, a touching memory of the people who filled the scenes of the Kalamata Dance Megaron with their work, performance, and soul.
