The Moving Cities project in Athens

The Moving Cities project. A few words about the project.

Moving Cities is the cinematographic project of the artist, director and manager of Wind and Foster, Mr. Jevan Chowdhury. This project was born in 2014 and aims to discover the beauty and the uniqueness of every city.

Mr. Chowdhurry brings together dancers that represent different dancing styles and enables them to show their talent in the heart of big cities of the world like London and Paris. Dancers are dancing in the middle of big avenues, in little streets, in squares and every little corner of the city is transformed into a dance floor. All dancing styles are becoming one in order to bring to life the idea of the artist to present a city through the movement of their people.
