The dancers/divers spent two years preparing for the project. Screenshot taken from Drops of Breath/Mashable’s video (below).

Last week off Cape Sounion, Greece, 14 dancers, many of whom disabled, donned scuba tanks and took to the seafloor to perform for 40 spectators (all of whom, in order to purchase tickets, were required to be certified divers).

“Suddenly, I am on the sea bed, in the water, the floor disappears, and as a result my body is much more free down there, and I am doing things that I could not even imagine” – Irini Kourouvani, performer.
