„Stille” investigates the notions of utopia on the physical level. What happens to the human body in highly utopian environment? Can we treat utopia as a virus? These are the main questions addressed in the piece. Four dancers go on a journey through the history of utopian thinking accompanying by the string quartet. During this journey the audience is more and more immersed in the deep waters of sensual sounds and images. What looks like a presentation becomes a challenge. Just like silence, sinister and comforting at the same time. Silence seen not as lack of sounds but eternal peace which we all seek but which is here on earth impossible.

Premiere: 16.11.2012, Manghha Centre For Japanese Art And Technology (Krakow)
