TUK (Tukuhnikivatz) has been selected for showing at the Mykonos Biennale in Mykonos, Greece, July 2-7. This year’s festival will follow the theme “Antidote,” and our eternal search for it.

This fusion of dance and the environment is an extraordinary journey of eight souls across the majestic breathtaking landscapes of Utah and the Four Corners Area of the Southwest United States – five dancers, two filmmakers, and one photographer reveal their uplifting and challenging experience in this inspiring film by Maida Withers. Dancers in a ritual of passage and transformation, capture the Native American spirit and ancestral voice that resides in this awe inspiring place. TUK redefines this spirit for modern times to renew and celebrate our consciousness and connection to the Earth and planet.

The Mykonos Biennale is a cult event which brings together artists from all over the world to create something new, to break the borders of their own art, using the telluric energy and hermetic beauty of this cosmopolitan island. Returning to the essence of the island: Sexy, hippy, historic nudist-naturalists, paganistic and mythic is the Mykonos Biennale destination. The international multicultural events will interact with the local memories, traditions, and historical spaces creating a unique experimental event. The art exhibitions, the installations, and performances of the artists, the musicians, and dance group will spread through out the monasteries, the museums, the old houses, the ancient island of Delos, the windmills and other monumental buildings, like a treasure map of the old island. The heart of the festival is the Cine Mando which will host the first open air video film festival.
