A production about living boundaries
„RAZDEDAUCH" is a collaborative promenade performance created by 12 dance artists over the age of 45. We are a transnational group from Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Norway, Finland, Sweden and United Kingdom, and have also welcomed guest artists from Finland, Ukraine and USA.
The performance invites the audience to travel alongside us as we inhabit and animate different spaces within each building. The fluidity of the piece comes from the fact that sections we bring transform in relation to the history and nature of the place, and are interspersed with new elements created specifically in response to each unique environment.
Becoming present reveals the gained experience we all carry within us, with our interest for this project being to illuminate that uniqueness and capitalise on our commonalities and differences within the process of creating. The particularity of the past two years has challenged, shaped and expanded our shared practice, becoming a catalyst for the interweaving themes of breath, physical proximity, and boundaries. Coming from different countries our meetings have been few and fleeting and have taken many different forms and constellations, yet, something meaningful always comes into existence when we are simply present in a moment with each other. Underscoring this project and performance of mature dance artists from different backgrounds is the celebration of the notion that dance and dancing belongs to everyone – at every age.
