Running away, fleeing, a mad dash that never stops. At least once in our lives we all experience the feeling of being a fugitive. We run.
Five dancers fighting with their own power and one invisible sniper in the audience. An artwork that emerges on the scene via a barrage of colours. If you don’t run, you will die. Memories of people in danger in Sarajevo and the Maidan in Kyiv, and of people in crisis situations in the Middle East. The threat can come from anywhere and at any time.
Spitfire Company is looking for a new language of the body built on running and its variations. The rhythmic structure recalling the choreography of act two of Swan Lake in a piece by American composer Sivan Eldar.
