Urgent need to breath

Theatre performance (2018)

2018 – premiere at Trafó House of Arts – Budapest


In the ambivalent nature of diving there are simultaneously present the complete detachment but also a kind of elemental connection to ourselves and our environment. During this special experience – treated as a sport – the subjective sensation of the time spent in the water gives a sensation of timeless travel. The interdisciplinary piece Urgent Need to Breathe invites its visitors into a space in which motion, interactive technology, visual and sound builds up an almost fluid, seemingly sensitive world. The international creative team puts special emphasis on the relationship between dance and digital arts.
