A funny little dance piece about nostalgia, unfulfilled dreams and the human behavior in ridged social structures. There are 4 female characters, which seem to be trapped by their memories of an old “good” time and by the conservative power of a group leader. The superficial harmony between them starts to weaken as soon one of the characters tries to break free from this collective. This situation gives an impulsive momentum to the group, which leads into an unexpected new constellation.
The FD is interested in this choreography to explore the dynamics of the human behavior: collective versus individual. What makes us try to adapt to a collective or try to break free?
