Production Details / Press Releases

The HALLE Tanzbühne Berlin was one of the first venues to open its season in mid-August. In October we will present another premiere. The cie. toula limnaios used the existence-threatening situation of lockdown for new paths. Toula Limnaios organized the rehearsals completely differently and created with each dancer individually. The intensive collaboration enabled new perspectives: otherwise known internationally for large ensemble pieces, now intimate encounters with the dancers and individual spaces for each individual personality were created.

»tell me a better story« is a series of solo/ duet pieces that were developed for the ensemble during the period of isolation and pandemic. faced with uncertainty and desperation, looking at an inexistent future, we experienced each day anew. we gave each other this »valuable time«, and surrendered to a development process that grabbed us unexpectedly, and simply took us away. enriching like a blessing, in retrospect.

the charisma of every dancer and their personality has always been characteristic of our work. their individual strengths will be unveiled in six solos and a duet, reflecting the personalities of our ensemble, whose character and aura are always present on the stage, and imprint the work of the cie. toula limnaios.

So I worked with what I know about these people as dancers, but also with what I don’t know. The way to get there was wonderful and I’m very proud.«
