I was suspected to have been involved in that show. Who can say if I was… You can’t certainly find that out from me. What I can tell you is that we had another «c’est fou!» in Ikaria or should I rather say «it’s crazy!» because the star in this new case is a Canadian athlete and instructor, Greg Carver from Toronto.

Greg has a blog called Athletics by Nature

«…This year, I took a much more rational and satisfying approach. Taking some of the elements that I learned from natural movement guru Erwan Le Corre, I decided to try and train in nature as much as possible, and I also made a conscious decision to back off a bit in intensity when I felt like I’d “had enough”. That was certainly the case on my most recent vacation, which was spent on the island of Ikaria in Greece. While there, I scouted the landscape for training opportunities, and managed to find a number of great locations in which to incorporate running, lifting, throwing, swimming, jumping, balancing and other movements.  I used only natural movements that people have been doing for hundreds of thousands of years. No gym or equipment was needed.»

I liked his approach. Everything else is in the photos. Enjoy. Perhaps not as graceful and calculated as the French, nevertheless definitely simpler stuff that anybody (well, almost anybody) can do. Grab the ideas. Isn’t it what little boys (and some girls too) do anyway?

Δεν είναι ακροβάτες. Είναι video and multimedia artists. Τους είδα να δουλεύουν σε διάφορα μέρη πέρσι στην Ικαρία, ενώ κι εγώ (to agrimi) βρισκόμουν σε μια αντίστοιχη διαδικασία. Αξιοθαύμαστοι! Δείτε επίσης το  Entre deux του donald abad στο Vimeo.

Entre Deux creates a space for experimentation between two artists where, far from «civilization,» human bodies confront nature with endurance, contemplation, defeat, and cooperation. Clad in white tennis clothes and armed with no more than a piece of rope, the artists perform these meditations on the body’s relationship with another body, as well as with the terrain in which they find themselves, to hilarious or poignant ends. For example, the characters are defeated by their surroundings when they fight each other (Entre Deux – Untitled (Jumeaux)) and are at one with the spaces they inhabit when they cooperate with each other (Entre Deux – Untitled [Epaule contre Epaule]). Donald Abad and Cyriac Allard both of France are artists who live and work in Paris.

Δε μου λες Νανα, μια υποψία πέρασε απ’ το μυαλό μου. Ποιός τράβηξε αυτές τις φωτογραφίες;
Μήπως μας κρύβεις κάτι;
