A powerfull duet for two male dancers, grouchy electronic musik and a scenography that brings you to the desert planes.
..excellent dance...yet another very comprehensive and succesfull interactive creation4 stars, Vibeke Wern, Berlingske
TØRST is the danish word for thirst.
The title itself provokes an almost physical sensation – a bodily urge fueled by an essential need.
TØRST is a powerful duet for two male dancers, a duet on human drive and survival. Two bodies in a place where strategic thinking has ceased and instinct has taken over – a place between vulnerable intimacy and untamed forces.
The Scenography is simple yet very convincing: a floor completely covered with corrugated cardbord that both brings your mind to the vast desert planes and also generate a special dry sound every time the dancers move. Combined with video scenography of sand particles that slides across the stage, the scenography creates a unique visual universe.
