Doublebill Program: Common Ground & DANCE FLOOR 2022
We create utopian facts - a transcultural requiem meets the birth of a peaceful togetherness. With Common Ground we bring our commonalities onto the sports mat. We mix up old rules of the game and let a new game emerge. Is it a game - a true utopia? Or just a faded memory of our childhood days?

Common Ground: We create utopian facts - a transcultural mass meets the birth of a peaceful coexistence. With Common Ground we bring what we have in common onto our sports mat. We mix up old rules and create a new game. Between minimalist movements, dramatic poses, joyful mat sliding, a musical crossover of Western and Middle Eastern sounds, we search for our common dreams. Will this common ground keep us together or will it separate us? Is it a game - a true utopia? Or just a faded memory of our childhood days?
