LIVING ROOM is a room in motion, evoked not just by the dancers but also by an almost organically living video scenography. The floor starts to move, the floor disappears – the space begins to breathe….
LIVING ROOM is a performance about hierarchies. Open source, 2.0 and other non-hierarchical structures are buzzwords in the 21st century – and yet, we all subject ourselves to a long line of ancient hierarchies. The world’s oldest is that between man and shadow – a hierarchy of nature that it is impossible to disobey… Or is it? Confronting the human body and a motion sensitive scenography, LIVING ROOM put a physical expression on what it means to take control or subject, and questions who is the puppet and who is the puppeteer – who controls whom?

Jonas - works with the tension between strength and fragility. A lion or soldier with breath holding memories and experience that motivates him – but also holds him back. Rumiko – a dragonfly that attached to the ground her back has adjustment to resemble the crack she makes in the soil and in the soul
