In Search of a Title - Evangelos Biskas V & Elysia Mc Mullen


Evangelos Biskas V

In our daily routine an unguided action can cause big confusion, while in a dream reality, the unpredictable is normal. These two realities seem to have different conventions. In Search of a Title does an attempt to redefine them.  


Evangelos Biskas V (1994, GR), Elysia McMullen (1991, IRL), Isaac Poels (1994, BEL) and Ruben den Brok (1992, NL) work with sound, motion and improvisational techniques inspired by the surrealists. They rely on their impulses and instincts to experience freedom in their performance. Within a fixed framework, each enactment is a new adventure, each giving space for humor, absurdity and originality.


Evangelos Biskas V is a performer and choreographer (FHK dance). For his graduation piece, Eternal Chillling, he won the Moving Forward Young Dance Makers Award 2016.In Search of a Title was made as the result of the Moving Forward Trajectory. He is currently one of the promising artists of PLAN - new makers - theater, dance and circus.
