Nir de Volff and Theater o. N.

The dancers explore the different aspects of breathing; they hold their breath and exhale. They let the power and energy of breathing move them in an ever-changing way, while going through a roller coaster of emotions between restrictions and the search for freedom.

After two years of pandemic, it is even more urgent to rediscover anew and appreciate the vastness and power that breathing gives us.

In this choreography, Nir de Volff together with the dancers and the audience, embarks on a search for humanity and what it means to be human. At the end of each performance, children and adults are invited to breathe and dance together with the performers; loud and quiet, spirited and restrained, and always full of freedom.

After many successful works for theaters like the Schaubühne, Gorki Theater or Thalia Theater Hamburg, Nir de Volff now developed together with the Theater o.N. for the first time a piece for young audiences. The choreography is based on his movement method BBM - Breathing Bodies Movement, which focuses on the body and its breathing system as the motor for dance movements.
