Performance synopsis

The show explores the movement and social dimension of Danse Macabre, focusing on the communal and bodily potential of uninterrupted dance.
A dance that is a trance-like whirl to blood-pumping techno music. A dance that soothes fears and offers the possibility of discovering joy and group strength. It allows the performers and spectators to rediscover their own vital body. A sense of togetherness is reassuring. As long as we are alive. As long as we dance.
