On 1 September 2018, we will present our latest dance theatre performance PRESENT coproduced with the Pfefferberg Theater in Berlin.
Guided by Greek director Costas Lamproulis, actress Jana Zöll and dancers Dodzi Dougban and Wagner Moreira explore the meaning of present and presence through their individual physicalties.
PRESENT is a stage as blurry as the past, as uncertain as the future. The stories of the present are created by our incomplete and automatised perception wrapped into the sweet, familiar illusions of our existence. Again and again and again.
