“EAT ME/DRINK ME is a solo dance performance created and performed by Sofia Karagiorgou in collaboration with the Berlin-based musician Cravune.
Taking inspiration from Alice in Wonderland, EAT ME/DRINK ME presents a tale of transition between adolescence to adulthood in a contemporary urban society to heady effect. This ‘journey down the rabbit hole’ charts the experience crossing the threshold from the comfort and stability of youth to a space wherein personal myths and expectations of the future are confronted by a different reality.
The confusion and pace of the city can swallow you in the process of finding your feet. The possibilities are vast; stimulus all around can confound and contradict. The gulf between expectations and experience question the foundations of a newly formed identity. This disassociation of self can be destabilising, stuck in limbo between not wanting to accept the prescripts of the given society nor yield to the accompanying prescribed responsibilities. Drinking in the city, developing a broad mind and accepting otherness may be the path to navigate this time, this city, to find yourself again.”
