And Then...

And Then... is dance and soft circus expressed in a polyphonic and imaginary world. Four characters meet to tell and present their story in different ways. Objects roll around, things move and perspectives change through dance, speech and song. Someone talks about dancing bees, another about dexterous opposites and ingeniousness. 

And Then... is a suggestive puzzle, a playful treasure hunt and a riddle. Inspired by new research into neurodiversity this is a world where everything is equal in value: the animated room, body and sounds. What is it like to be in a world where we cannot discern any single experiences - where everything is of the same value?

Press quotes
