SWAN / An interdisciplinary physical theater piece 
2021


PREMIERE 20.01.2022 at DOCK11, Berlin, DE




Every legend begins with an event that may or may not have happened...

On stage, the character spreads his feathers, lets the body speak and the thoughts flow. A journey into the soul begins. A recollection of memories, dreams, and echoes of stories once heard. In a roller coaster ride of colors, feelings and moods, the audience experiences the ups and downs of life. A fantastic solo piece about identity and self-realization. Bringing together dance, theater and film, this mythical coming-of-age narrative evolves through the struggles of pursuing one’s dreams. Nothing is ever done, everything is always transforming, an unending process of becoming and being whole.
