Emotional dance theatre about the constant quest for happiness.
“Dandelion” mixes imagery and physicality in order to explore our constant human quest for joy, liberation, ease and happiness. It reveals stories about our anxiety to change, our fear to leap into the unknown and our trepidation to exist in a changing world where human connection becomes more and more elusive. This creation is the first joint work of established artists Hannes Langolf and Ermira Goro who performed for 9 years with the world renowned company “DV8 Physical Theatre”. Their shared passion is to create work that sits in the subtle space between reality and metaphor, closely connected to life and its stories.
“With “Dandelion” we want to dive into the inner world of our human obstacles and inhibitions and find a way to reveal the joy of stepping over our own thresholds. We very much saw this project as a devised piece, drawing from the stories of our performers and ourselves… We talked a lot about how an honest relationship with the people around us can make us go beyond our own insecurities and obstacles and make us a fuller version of ourselves.” Hannes Langolf & Ermira Goro
