Premier 1st 26.11. Theater am Lend, Graz
2nd April NUdance Fest, Bratislava
Performance about movement, words, euphemisms and what lies within.
"21&counting" is a performance where communication and a perception of reality are the main themes. Based on ironic pretext - delayed celebratory performance of 20th anniversary on stage in which dancer is picking in his memories and putting dance and movement as medium to talk about the words and communication, "21&counting" humorously explores the use of political correctness and euphemisms as escape routes from reality, thus heralding contemporary problems with acceptation of people, their surroundings and underlying lack of trust in values during human encounters.
21&counting is a co-production project between Belgium, Slovakia and Austria.
