Tanzwurster
In an homage to Pina Bausch, the space explores the notions of liminality. The performance is composed of several vignettes blending together; they occur simultaneously and separately. People fall in love, they laugh, they struggle, they fight. Chairs are thrown, balloons are popped, walls are scratched, wood is broken. The dancers interact with the environment as a space of flux. The performance describes a certain time of day during which a normally empty space is flooded with liminal interactions. It is on the threshold of many different worlds.

At the end, the space finds itself restored to its original state of disarrayed equilibrium.
