Site specific – dance performance tours in cities and nature.


Site specific – dance performance tours in cities and nature. With a proactive public that moves along, these performance tours lead over hills, along rivers, through buildings and streets. Throughout this walks we test locomotion strategies and instincts of humans and animals and make them tangible. By making the path to our destination, we expose and explore the ‘condition humaine’. We guide you through the cities and nature while you take the role of both: audience as well as active companion. We guarantee: change of perspective!

Walking up and falling down, again and again. They could be friends or lovers or brothers and sisters. They keep getting up and keep on going. Carry, push and pull each other. An extreme physicality manifests itself by the fact that they never give up.

The carry drag, confront each other and walk up and fall down.

“We must imagine Sisyphus as a happy person.”
– Albert Camus
