Love and Passion

This is a theme everybody is familiar with. Does love create suffering? Or is it suffering that creates love? We will aim to look closely at ways of expressing with our body the visions and emotions evoked by love and passion. Poems by Jürgen Kühne will provide our basis and inspire us on our journey, during which we will experience the unity of body, soul and mind in a Dance Life Theatre.
