After their last piece “Tideland”, the amateur performers of the Dance On Lab are now exploring emotional memories of ‘love’ for this new production, including everything that we associate with the word: falling in love, breaking up, jealousy… Fragments come together to create images that are expressed through dance, the body and the voice. A feeling of “butterflies in my stomach” can develop into an improvised solo, while a feeling state of “hurt and abandoned” may result in a group choreography.
The piece was developed by the group in collaboration with Nicole Berndt-Caccivio, a Swiss dancer, choreographer and lecturer in contemporary dance. She is the artistic director of the Age Company in Vienna, founded in 2009, which deals with art for and with older people. With the project „Collective Spheres“, which she founded in 2020, she connects with younger dancers and choreographers on different artistic, pedagogical and performative levels.
