Nikos Georgiou: MOCHI
MOCHI is a 25-minute autobiographical devised performance based on the excellent ability of making mistakes and repeating them successfully. Mixing queer aesthetics, Greek trash, BDSM practice and childhood trauma, the performance ponders on questions such as which mistakes we deal with, which mistakes we just let be, forgetting or renaming them. Mochi is a Japanese delicacy based on rice flour.
"To make a good mochi, you need to pound it well before it cools down."
Performers: Despina Sevasti, Angel Torticolis, Nikos Georgiou
