Tabea Martin [Switzerland]
Field | 45 min
Three bodies. One field. The 100 best love songs.
They long for something to happen, for some explosion. They fight fiercely for love, for affection, for recognition. Startlingly athletic and dynamic, this trio is a battlefield.
A performance about the tireless fight, that something should happen in life. And the disillusionment that if something happens, then it’s not been the right thing. That the more you want to experience the less you experience. A performance that is trying to understand what drives people and how they can engage. A performance, with three people who want to connect with one another.
