A new performance commission by Lenio Kaklea which choreographs a rewilding of bodies and forests.


The Ardennes, the Black Forest, Broceliande, the Vexin. Forests are spaces that can elude immediate understanding. Here, humans and animals scatter and hide, stalking, pursuing and trapping each other. Places of calm and meditation, of ecstasy and vivid life, forests can also be threatening and toxic environments.

In Αγρίμι (Fauve), Lenio Kaklea meticulously choreographs a ‘rewilding of bodies’. Through on-stage exercises, dances and rituals, she explores the forest as a place – both physical and imaginary – for identities to dissolve and bodies to metamorphose. As the first performance that links Kaklea’s choreography to the geographical, environmental and poetic richness of the forests, Αγρίμι (Fauve) presents dance as another wild zone to be defended.

Αγρίμι (Fauve) is co-commissioned by Serpentine and Kunstenfestivaldesarts, Brussels; Athens Epidaurus Festival; Centre national de la danse Pantin; Festival d’Automne de Paris; Theater Spektakel Zürich; Pôle Sud – CDCN de Strasbourg; La Briqueterie – CDCN Val-de-Marne; ImPulsTanz International Festival; DanceWEB Life Long Burning Network; Le Dancing – CDCN de Dijon.

The UK premiere of Αγρίμι (Fauve) is presented by Serpentine in partnership with Sadler’s Wells.

The project is curated and produced by Kostas Stasinopoulos, Curator, Live Programmes, Serpentine and Holly Shuttleworth, Executive Producer, HS Studio, with Daisy Gould, Assistant Curator, Live Programmes, Serpentine, Isobel Peyton Jones, Production Coordinator, Serpentine, Andy Downie, Production Manager, Velocet, and Eva Speight, Curatorial Assistant, Live Programmes, Serpentine.
