The solo performance Schwanensee in Sneakers opens our eyes to the multifaceted forms of dance and the power of transformation inherent in every body. In this sense, the piece sees itself as a fun and creative transfer of knowledge for young people that passes on different perspectives on dance and movement. What is dance? What can dance be? Which bodies dance? The dancer Anna Till moves in a crossover of styles that change from the everyday to the grotesque, from the classical to the experimental. Historical movement material meets contemporary form.
Is waiting for the bus actually also dance?
