Warehouses Full of Emotions
4 young dancers, 1 eight-year-old girl, 1 eighty-nine-year-old grandmother
The performance Warehouses Full of Emotions is an intergenerational experiment investigating womanhood, inspired by authentic memories of an old lady - the choreographer´s grandmother.
We are endowed with feelings, full warehouses of emotions, but sometimes a buyer is missing. We want to be endlessly loving, to be „walking on air“. We are passionate puppets, but we have cunning lusts as well. An infinite competition of desires and dreams. Tenderness is our weapon. Naivety our stumbling block. We totter between moments of self-confidence and doubts, sovereignty and triviality. We immerse ourselves in our feelings. Later we want to talk them over within our circle of confidants, then an even narrower circle of confidants, and finally - we recognize that we can cope with all that best on our own. The young desire, the old reminisce.
