In this ceremony I had the chance to explore and eventually put on stage ideas that I’ve been wanting to do for years. We approached the mass cast scenes in a theatrical way, in an effort to allow story telling and emotion come out through specific and indivual quality in the movement and the intention of our performers, professional and volunteers.
The Life as Sport duet was a piece conceived and choreographed by Nikos Lagousakos. It’s about the story of a couple, seen through the sport disciplines of the Asian Games. A courageous idea of having just two performers for a whole segment in a stadium ceremony that definitely payed off and was considered as one of the highlights of both ceremonies.
