Production Details / Press Releases
In light of what’s going on right now in the world, it seems paradoxical that a return to and into the body is taking place. As the last domain that still seems controllable, the body has become the battlefield for the conflicts that surround us. It is shaped and designed to become the ultimate weapon. Superhuman strength is just one of the skills we need to train to survive what is coming. Current fitness trends combine an extremely wide range of physical practices in order to achieve nothing less than being prepared for anything. What visions of the future, ideologies and role models are hidden behind this desire? An army of ultra-fit women who are prepared to deploy their bodies, but don’t exactly know what for, will fight for answers to these questions on stage.
