When light falls on a prism, it splits into a colorful ribbon and shows the colors of the rainbow. A whole spectrum emerges from a single color, something colorful and diverse. In the pop-up dance performance Prisma, the collective around Rotem Weissman understands this function metaphorically. Because even if everyone sees the same thing, everyone has their own, different world of imagination. How can these differences be celebrated, as another color in the rainbow of diverse perspectives?

Prisma takes various children's books as its starting point, in which fascinating worlds open up: sometimes imaginative, like the "Wild Soccer Bunch", sometimes microscopically small, with a strange appearance, sometimes in metamorphosis, like the caterpillar that becomes a butterfly. Stories are brought to life by turning figures, images and narratives into movements. The concrete becomes abstract, so that new figures emerge and the stories merge into a world that is mysterious, humorous, colorful and unexpected and seems to follow no logic. As in a daydream, situations and objects are decoupled from their meaning and new contexts are created. In this play, the children's variety of interpretations is explored and stimulated in equal measure.
