„We counted all our demons, saw there was one for every day.”
In her new work, choreographer Kareth Schaffer devotes herself to the demons of today's world: between actionism and laziness, distraction and apathy, the performers Madalina Dan and Manon Parent fight their way through the stage landscape. Inspired by the way of life of early Christian monks, the so-called "desert fathers", the dancers submit to rhythms of community, ritual and work. But contemporary demons such as boredom, distraction and apathy are at work on stage. While the performers literally struggle with the relationship between belief and action, they find choreographic answers to timeless questions of philosophy!
