CELEBRATION is a tribute to festivity and celebration; a life-affirming acknowledgment of milestones, anniversaries and other important occasions in a time overshadowed by crisis and conflict.
Four international dancers and the ensemble celebrate an event. In a cocktail of rituals and traditions from their respective home countries they are drawn into an ecstatic atmosphere. As the celebration develops they face critical choices that have serious consequences.
They become one steamy body. Their muscles tighten, they bend their necks. And now we hear their heavy breathing. They accelerate and exceed all reason.
