Yet Another Day in Paradise / Dance performance / Do 23.11.2023, 19 Uhr
An island of queerness, filled with open reflections becomes the paradise in the lives of two characters. When reality does not accept you as you are, you start to create a reality of your own. And with that, a daily creative process that is happening all around you and inside of you starts, disassembles, and reorganizes focus… Back in your formative years, your relationships and confrontations with the people closest to you led to a feeling of discomfort, of not fitting in, and insecurity. We all remember how easily a simple commentary from aside can affect you: forming and developing your self-consciousness and sense of self-worth from a young age when you don’t really understand the difference between good and bad, what is intended to work only for girls, and what is strictly “boys only”. Sensitive and poignant stories are told by the bodies. Bodies seeking comfort and becoming themselves, while the surroundings still refuse to accept and agree with them.
