NAH DRAN extended: toolbox | ada Studio in den Uferstudios

Production Details / Press Releases

This work-in-progress performance investigates how we look at trained dancers in relation to mythologies of hierarchical environments, commodified aesthetics and ambition. Entering a transit depot, turned dance studio, turned theater, the public meets a dancer who’s haunted by the machinations of ballet and the promises his techniques have yet to unveil.
