World premiere at the Aarhus Festival!
A dark and intense universe with a black, glassy floor, surrounded by reflective surfaces, is the frame for a meeting between the three dancers and a percussionist. To the sound of low notes from a double bass and crescendo rhythms, the audience is taken on a journey from the concept of "me" to "us". In this cross-modern dance performance Selene Muñoz grabs hold of the topic "modern communications", and looks at how this affects the way we relate to each other, our empathy and our flirtation with narcissism. How far dare we go?
Co-produced by Bora Bora.
Please note! Following the performance on Wednesday August 31st we have an artist talk with Selene Muñoz on our small stage.
