THE DANCERS

In 1989, at Paquito D’Rivera’s performance at the Herod Atticus Theatre, Christina Beskou met him and daringly said to him, “I have choreographed to your song, Seresta.” This provoked the attention and interest of the musician. He responded that he would be back in Athens in July to perform at the Lycabettus Theatre. That was all Christina needed; she then proposed that they do a happening together with her dancers and his group when the song was played at the concert. So it was, that overcoming the difficulties posed by the organisers and the officials responsible for the performance, Christina Beskou and her troupe danced Seresta to live music played by Paquito D’ Rivera and his orchestra.
