Pharmacist or Balloonist

Costumes and scenography for performances by Elpida Orfanidou at Ballhaus Ost, Berlin and Onassis Cultural Centre, Athens (2017)

Pharmacist or Balloonist is a choreographic herbal laboratory that mixes dance, music and discussion with the live production of herbal remedies concocted by choreographer and pharmacist Elpida Orfanidou. In reference to movements of de-growth and ecology, the piece asks the questions: Can the poison of time be transformed into a medicine of timelessness? The poison of forced productivity into a medicine of deliberate creativity? To support this quest, Claudia Hill designs hand-dyed lab uniforms and a large movable tent structure for the set.
