What is dance? What can dance be? Which bodies dance?

Can waiting for the bus be a dance? With Swan Lake in Sneakers, the dancer Anna Till embarks on a crossover of styles from the everyday to the grotesque, from the classical to the popular. Sound bites from different choreographers, music and sounds play from records, cassettes and boom boxes. The past is interwoven with the present. This solo performance opens our eyes to the multifaceted forms of dance and the power of transformation inherent in every body. The pop-up piece sees itself as an enjoyable and creative transfer of knowledge for young people that does not seek completeness, but rather to pass on different perspectives on dance and movement.
