VAKUUM - Dance piece for young audience (and more)

In a whirlwind of social pressure and constant expectation, four house dancers move in a space filled with uncertainty and the burden of choices. Their dance is about the inability to breathe in a vacuum of expectations and constraints, while the world around them calls out for answers.

Vacuum is a powerful and moving portrayal of the challenges and hopes, that today's generation faces.

As part of Young Vibes, SZENE Salzburg's program for young audiences, the two choreographers Olivia Mitterhuemer & Farah Deen from Potpourri Dance present their latest work Vakuum. At the beginning of the process, the duo embarked on a research phase at schools in Salzburg to find out, together with teenagers, what the young generation is concerned about.

A co-production with SZENE Salzburg.
