»tell me a better story 1+2« is a series of solo/ duet pieces that were developed for the ensemble during the period of isolation and pandemic. It will be presented in 2 parts on alternate evenings.
»tell me a better story 1« is the first part of a series of solo/ duet pieces that were developed for the ensemble during the period of isolation and pandemic. faced with uncertainty and desperation, looking at an inexistent future, we experienced each day anew. we gave each other this »valuable time«, and surrendered to a development process that grabbed us unexpectedly, and simply took us away. enriching like a blessing, in retrospect.
the charisma of every dancer and their personality has always been characteristic of our work. their individual strengths will be unveiled in six solos and a duet, reflecting the personalities of our ensemble, whose character and aura are always present on the stage, and imprint the work of the cie. toula limnaios.

»The corona pandemic has forced us to find a new way of working. I had to let these pieces emerge day to day. They are not autobiographical, yet they are connected to the lives of the dancers. So I worked with what I know about these people as dancers, but also with what I don't know. The way to get there was wonderful and I'm very proud.«
