The idea for the dance piece THE NEST refers to the on going pandemic. It made us realize that our plans can become quite meaningless. The sudden restrictions to physically move freely across continents have actually pushed the big wide world into an unreachable distance and brought us back to our own house and the immediate surroundings. We learn new humility. We experience how life is slowed down. We see the world with new eyes. We pause and look forward to what is to come.
THE NEST holds the aspiration of those searching for a tranquil space that they belong to a peaceful place to hide, lean on, take a rest in their journey of finding a way to live in harmony with all the unpredictable changes of this modern world.
Each thread twist into a string,
The sounds harmonize to the total spectrum,
Much motion-moving-stillness weaves the dance.
This is love, desire, sadness, responsibility.
These are bodies, emotions, identities, people.
Intertwining and interlacing. Horizontally and vertically.
All together! Turning into a NEST... a HOME of our own.
- Swaying swinging
- Hidden secrets
- Life stage
- Inside - outside inner
