A hybrid dance performance in public space. In an interplay of audio walk, fashion design and dance performances, the four performers transform the everyday landscape. „Portraits“addresses the complexity of personalities and identity: how can questions of cultural belonging, social norms and digitalisation be articulated and negotiated through dance? The audience follows the dystopian masked dancers. The posture of openness plays an important aspect. Interpreting the perspectives of many others, sharing and questioning the spaces in which we coexist, smoke bombs are lit, dance solos are painted through movement. The dance is accompanied by an hour-long audio track. „Portraits“ will at some point merge performance and reality.
