Dandelion

Hannes Langolf & Ermira Goro

Dance & Physical Theatre - 2017

Description

Dandelion is the first joint work of established artists and choreographers Hannes Langolf and Ermira Goro. Their shared passion is to create meaningful work that sits in the subtle space between reality and metaphor, closely connected to life and its stories. This poetic production mixes imagery and physicality with the aim to magnify fleeting moments of inner conflict and explores our constant human quest for communication, connection and happiness. Combining their individual styles and exchanging materials and experiences, Langolf and Goro produce an amalgam of physical virtuosity and meditative poetry. For this production, they are joined by five talented performers whose work strengthens the case for an abstract choreography, thick with symbolism.
