• ABOUT
    • Co-artistic directors Christine Gouzelis & Paul Blackman established the Athens (Greece) based company JUKSTA (aka) Jukstapoz in early 2010.

      The choreographic duo creates multilayered atmospheres and other-worldly mise en scenè, to make work that balances both chaos and harmony upon a body of symbolist, fable-like beauty. The constant aesthetic inquiry into sensory experiences, both intimate and shared, results from deconstructing narratives and juxtaposition of associated ideas, characters and concepts placed side by side compared and contrasted.

      As the recipient of multiple international commissions, the co-directors have choreographed and collaborated at various, theatres, institutions, festivals and companies worldwide, among others -
      Götenburgs Operans Danskompani, Teatro Alla Scala, Sadlers Wells, Salzburg Festspiele, Wiener Staatsoper, Onassis Cultural Centre Athens, Athens Epidaurus Festival, Tasdance Australia, Kalamata International Dance Festival.
      The team's continued vision is engagement with a highly versatile range of platforms from contemporary dance, ballet, opera, theatre, music, fashion, film and involvement with educational and pedagogical training.

      ​Jukstapoz continuously strives to establish lasting foundations that uphold its vision and commitment to collaborative practices. Mutually respectful, trust-based engagements continue to be invaluable for every creative outcome the company engages with.

INTOLLERANZA 1960

SALZBURG FESTSPIELE 2021
Freunde der Salzburger Festspiele e.V. Bad Reichenhall

Intolleranza 1960 is an opera that provides more questions than answers. Can it in fact be called an opera at all? Or does it offer a statement of much greater importance? Nono wrote Intolleranza 1960, seen as his debut in the world of theatre, following a commission for the 24th International Festival of Contemporary Music at the Venice Biennale, where it had its premiere at the Teatro La Fenice 60 years ago. It was considered one of the most striking pieces of music in the history of the post-war avant-garde and a culminating work of Nono’s first artistic period. It tells of an anonymous emigrant who returns to his native land. On his journey, he finds himself in the midst of a protest and, although innocent, is arrested, tortured and imprisoned in a concentration camp. His longing for home becomes an urge for freedom. He succeeds in escaping, but fate strikes when a tidal wave causes a humanitarian disaster.
