And again, repeat is a scripted performance featuring a dancer and a purpose built ekkyklêma. This is a wheeled wooden platform traditionally used in Ancient Greek theatre to bring interior scenes out into the sight of the audience. Appropriating yoga positions, ham acting and ballet, the work contains three characters played by the dancer representing levels of theatrical hierarchy; a director, a performer and a prop.
