a meeting place

Drawing on expertise in contact improvisation and a deep exploration of themes of social space, Third Space / third place takes a playful look at how being with others creates identities and interactions that are crucial to our sense of vitality, connectedness, and being in and with the world.

A home away from home. But that wouldn't be original, would it? But nothing is original anymore, because everyone has something from Ikea - that beautiful decorative pillow you are so proud of. It's okay, I hope you don't mind that your neighbor across the street and the one three houses down have the same pillow. A unique space where you can just be yourself, where you're among friends, where everyone knows your name... that's the most important thing, right? Where else can you live an authentic version of yourself? At work? At home? That place, that space - it comes third. Outside of work, outside of home, it's a place to socialize, a place to play, a place to feel welcome. Maybe these places are disappearing from our lives. Maybe we need to create them. Maybe we can start to do that tonight. Dritter Raum / third space, is a piece that celebrates the social space.
