light-years - 2021

In collaboration with Draaimolen Festival, Caterina Barbieri, Bendik Giske, Lyra Pramuk, Nkisi & Marcel Weber.


Our spirits are searching. For reasons to exist. Movement serves as our acces point to bring these mystical reasons to light.
In a supernatural atmoshpere, the dancers unfold a ritual in which movement seems as deeply rooted as breathing. Hypnotized and stimulated by sounds, the environment and the audience, the dancers transcend reality as they gradually enter altered states of consciousness. In this choreographic debut at Draaimolen Festival, the scope of our spiritual humanity is questioned.
