ALICE (2016)

Many people, many dreams and wishes. If you dream too much you’re a day dreamer and if you don’t you’re described as dry and boring, without having a goal. In society everybody needs to know exactly where they want to be in life but doesn’t any realistic goal in life start off as a dream? Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s book “Alice in Wonderland” we are taking not the story but the psychological states of mind. What is dream and what is reality?

How do we deal with such things in life and how do the dreamers react if a heavy sack of reality drops onto them? Slowly reality, depicted as sacks filled with sand, weighs down the dancers and changes their way of moving.
How much reality can we take and how big can our dreams be?

Premiere: as choreographic Workshop in Frankfurt and Essen
