Director Statement

What are the losses we all experienced due to the pandemic and its aftermath?
Thoughts from people affected in different ways give us insights into other life circumstances. We remember together experiences of isolation, sadness, aggression but also hope and humour.
We share our longings to be seen, heard and touched by each other.
What is said is expressed in dance, film and music on an artistic level. The result is an atmospheric, sometimes surreal world of images and sounds that stimulates reflection - so that these experiences can have a positive effect.
Because what unites us in all our diversity is the need for human closeness, no matter what phase of life we are in.
