Despina Sophia Stamos arrived in the US in 1970 from a quiet, farming village, on an island in Greece. To live between two cultures, the conservative traditional Greek, and the perceived “freedoms” of America, is to teeter between the two.

tiptoeing a tightrope

straddling an ocean

Two distinct experiences of understanding the world, often in conflict.

push and pull-a foot in each

balancing on both but as they diverge

tumbling into the liminal space between.

From the falls, into the seam, the magic of discovery

between here and here…

performed by Despina Sophia Stamos and guest artists Bianca Falco and Marija Krtolica

soundtrack compilation DSS

set collaboration with cast

The work is an exploration of the space and tensions betwixt two distinct cultures coexisting in one body. Performers will source memory, kinetic impulse and the performance site to create short interactive vignettes throughout the duration. Interactions upon consent only.

Set to the compiled soundscores of passTRESpass, a decade long project, with displaced people in Athens, Greece.
