The Passion of Andrea, or: How We Learned to Laugh with Our Monsters

2016, Research

 

 

A piece reminiscent of a joke, a boxing ring, a conference, a monologue, a mini-ballet; where the words harmoniously combined with the performers’ movements swoop us up, restraining realism to celebrate the absurd.

Anna Chirescu, C’est comme ça qu’on danse / www.cccdanse.com for full review

 

Three dancers who claim to be Andrea embark on a chaotic search for identity and peace, often finding themselves on the brink of loosing control of everything. They are searching for something to stabilise them – clutching at straws sometimes. And at each other. Who is the real Andrea?

 

The piece is inspired by feelings of insecurity in a world of increasing instability, where people are made anxious by their own restlessness, random competition, and the conflicts surrounding them.
