Hide description

Life of a dancer is like a Turkish coffee; it's tasty and it has sediment. No matter what – you always have to face the question: Who am I? Where I am from? Where I'm going? It's a long way. Since we were born we are constantly bombed with social and cultural patterns that create our SELF. Twelve dancers, twelve individuals are facing social questions through physical action; a confrontation that brings decision, avoidance, seduction, harmony, chaos, fear and hope. It's a long way, baby. Let's find it out.
