I spy with my eye...something that is too big to pick up and impossible to shake up. I see grass that is turning greener, a bucket that is about to spill and people that are carrying water to the sea. I see an ocean carrying bodies. I see prayfor’s. hashtags, profile pictures with rainbow colors and people thinking black or white. We move to slow. The reality moves too fast. I am scrolling from laughing baby’s to children in shock, from quinoa to giro555, from a birth card to a memorial video. The more I see, the less I understand. Scrolling down isn’t as fun as is used to be, you also have to go back to the top.
In ‘So Far So Good’ we are searching the limitations of our emotional endurance. A multidisciplinary dance theatre experience where dance, text, music, projection, film and photography function as a mirror to the controversial time we live in.
