Fight, hierarchy, power, revolution.
Struggle with each other. Struggle with ourselves. Conquest and defeat.
The white carpet in the performance is a minimalist battlefield: symbol of confrontation, and more specifically the scene of struggles – and the combatants simultaneously collide with each other and themselves. Sometimes they fight their own fragility, and their own limits, while other times their own animal instincts, or the endless aggression of the world outside.
Lutte is an intense, physical, but also poetic dance piece about our human struggles, our symbolic and practical fights, about our social and emotional hierarchies. How can we overcome ourselves or the others? How can we defeat our ego? How can we handle our everyday fights? Lutte combines the elements of martial arts and contemporary dance, sign language and design, and also motifs of the Scandinavian mythology.
