Where thoughts are movement. An interpretation

NAH DRAN 28 | ada Studio in den Uferstudios

Production Details / Press Releases

This piece is an attempt to communicate and interpret thoughts through movement and sound with the use of improvisation.
What would thoughts sound and look like?
Thoughts come and go, they overwhelm you, they hunt you down, they possess you or they just pass by.
Is it possible to share some of this fragile and intimate moments on stage?
