The heterosexual cis couple looks deeply into each other's eyes. She looks at him languishingly, he looks down at her. She is dreamy, surrendering to the man's guidance. He twirls her around. Her body in a ball gown, his in a tuxedo. We know this stereotypical image of the dancing "dream couple" from countless films.

CHICKS* work off gender roles that are inscribed in couple dancing. They think back to their own proms and go in search of dancing role models, queer dance couples, dancing friends, leading women and surrendering men, consensual encounters in dance. - Awarded as best youth play by the youth jury of WILDWECHSEL FESTIVAL 2021.
