IF YOU DON’T GET LOST IN THE WOODS, YOU HAVEN’T BEEN TO THE WOODS

This performance invites you to get lost in the woods. As they accompany a dancer from the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company on their journey through the rooms of the Senckenberg Museum, they each make their own journey. The visitors listen to a soundtrack that frames the events emotionally.

The choreography shifts attention from the exhibits to the dancing bodies lost in the forest of the exhibition. By perceiving the surroundings in the corner of one's eye, the space is transformed into a place that has more to say than the information it contains. It becomes the scene of a journey whose riddle cannot be fully deciphered. Where am I now? Where have I ended up? What kind of place is this?
