how to be together with all our differences?
DIFFERENT? is not a duality, neither separation or delimitation. DIFFERENT? is about plurality of opinions and reactions. It’s about sharing a space.
It’s about listening, making decisions and taking actions that together create one whole.
DIFFERENT? is an evening where the stage and the auditorium meet is one space.
The borders are permeable and flexible, they depend only on how and where you set them.
DIFFERENT? A performance that also the audience can dance.
With this project we wished to dig into being, into who we are and how we are. Together. Different individuals creating and developing as one system fed and conditioned by it’s diversity.
Each place this work travels, the creators engage with a group of local volunteers and include them in the piece.
