“Pose_Transpose” launches an investigation into public space with regard to its limits and nature, and its relationship with the bodies that cross it every day. Freedom within public space is sometimes granted; at other times, it must be claimed. The form and layout of public space affects the movements of the people who share it, at times transforming those movements into a movement. The work took 35 days to make, including location scouting, shooting photos and film, creating a website, reworking sounds and texts to compose soundscapes, and directing and choreographing a series of actions and reactions. At eleven different points across the city: from Mount Lycabettus to Aghion Anargyron Square in Psyrri, and from Fokionos Negri Street to the Aristidou Arcade. In spaces public and private, on rooftops and inside apartments. Without an audience. And with eleven performers, whose journeys and stops around the city were recorded in situ, giving rise to the film and site map now being presented for the first time. The work renders an experiential observation of the events that unfolded in quarantine in 2020–2021. A map of movement traces has been created with a view to juxtaposing recent experiences with the limitations imposed on freed.
