The successful Reumert Award nominated performance from The European Capital of Culture 2017 is back!
HUMAN IN BALANCE – from waltz to Zembekiko
Once again DON GNU sets all on one board! Balancing on the gigantic board “The Turmoil” we let dancers and citizens from Aarhus and Pafos examine man as an individual and as a Citizen in a united Europe, where nobody moves without affecting the others
The two European Capitals of Culture in 2017, Aarhus and Pafos, are far from each other. But how does the everyday life look like for an ordinary Cypriot citizen of Pafos, and does it have anything in common with everyday life in Aarhus?
Created in co-operation with Dance House Lemesos from Cyprus and Bora Bora – Dance & Visual Theatre.
