dance film, 20 minutes
[ship of fools] is a dance-film created as a ritual of embracing chaos and absurdity of daily lives. Four performers travel through a multitude of spaces, in an empathic ”sailing boat”, that allows them to encounter their complex inner worlds with patience and understanding, softening expectations and breaking down stereotypes. They embrace the diversity of feeling and behaviour, finding in movement creative and poetic ways that nourish their ability to embrace the unknown and to come at peace with the all-surrounding absurdity. Dance becomes a way to survive as a soul and to dive safely into your depths.
