The group's main principle is to use contemporary dance techniques to create intensively physical performances.

Performance synopsis

‘Real Love’ is the mystery of birth, passing and death performed by three women of different ages. What does true love mean for them? Maybe it’s the feeling which mother has for her child. How does a woman feel being a mother? What does she feel when someone close to her dies? Love and death are two threads that constantly appear throughout the performance of ‘Real Love’, affecting each other at all times. Being a mother and being close to death. ‘Real Love’ is a form of choreographic poem.
