WHILE WE ARE HERE
(work in progress)
While we are here researches the ageless desire to collectively dance hard. This group piece brings together underground techno raving and folkloric dances that emphasize pleasure and togetherness.
The folk we propose is not singular but a borderless, hybrid technofolk, a dirty folk that celebrates difference.
The folk we propose is a soft folk, one that chooses to dance intimately together.
The folk we propose is a lost folk, one that is not situated in time, nor space.
With no nostalgia for the past and no specific future in mind, we are here, moving in spirals and circles, with our gaze on each other and on another place on the horizon.
