Crazy happiness

Since 1990 Konstantnos Rigos has choreographed 15 full-length dance-dramas with the Oktana Dance Theatre, which has shown them regularly all over the world.
The Oktana Dance Theatre was founded in 1990 by Konstantinos Rigos, who has since choreographed 15 full-length dance-dramas for it. It is one of Greece´s leading contemporary dance-companies, is publicly sponsored and has regularly been invited to perform abroad at festivals like the American Dance Festival, at the Biennale de la Danse in Lyons and at the Aerowaves Festival in London. Its latest production, ´Crazy Happiness´, begins with a bottle-turning game and thrillingly reveals group dynamics on the knife-edge between tenderness and brutality.
