Dance performance

„Kälteschlaf“ merges physical theater and contemporary dance to explore the movement of dreams, the language of irrationality, and the aesthetics of absurdity. The performance delves into the surreal quality of body movements, the connection to our instincts for the unusual and unfamiliar while drawing inspiration from surrealist art of the last century.
