Performance Stonelines is a hiking event that questions the necessity to stand in and across the landscape of Apano Meria in Syros. Descending from a hill to a cost line in the northern part of the island, we perform and are being performed by the grandeur of the place itself: to walk in the landscape, to be and to become with and in it and in this present moment. Stonelines performance embodies a course on the Syrian site as an offering, a confession and an exorcism, a prayerful call for grace and assistance. Performers and participants co-create a way of ‘being together’ and re-define the narrative of the specific site.
