Belonging. Being identified. Defined. Replaced. Re-identified. Re-defined. Our stories. Are they really ours? Or are they sunk within the stories of our nations? Who are we? Here, in United Europe.

In the time of political correctness and the world of union and co-existence, how do we relate to ourselves and others? Where are the limits? What don’t we want to talk about? What don’t we want to see?

This performance investigates our concept of coexistence and ability to cohabit. Four dancers with different backgrounds and nationalities through movement and words explore the idea of identity and belonging.
