Dance Performance, 150'
Let's imagine a world where events follow one another in an eternal loop. Where every failure is inevitable and our patterns of action are irresolvable. Where mankind, in an attempt to escape this cycle, spends all its efforts on controlling events and optimizing processes.
ERROR 508 (loop detected) is a dance piece without beginning and without end. A contemporary interdisciplinary production that deals with the dystopia of an eternal loop.
An eternal repetition of failure and failing, a being caught in patters of action, on a personal as well as on a global level, could lead us to despair. Can we also find humor and wisdom in this?
In this Come & Go format, viewers are invited to let themselves be ensnared by an eternal loop, reflecting on their own patterns of action.
An ode to the absurd and fragile beauty of human agency.
