Hope Hunt and the Ascension into Lazarus

Oona Doherty (Belfast)  

08 – 09 Aug 2020 | Potsdamer Tanztage 2020Dance / performance

Hope Hunt: The hunt for hope... An old dented car pulls up with its headlights flashing. Music plays from inside. A person who embodies many identities gets out to tell us their story. Alone on stage, this child from Belfast dances the desire for hope and the future of young men, their often provocative attitudes and gestures. Between anger and lightness, she slips into the emotional world of the people she has met on the streets of her neighbourhood, far from the glamour of the pedestrian zones. Hope Hunt rubs itself on the asphalt in order to better jump between gravity and hope.

Note: The performance will also be broadcasted live on screen at fabrik Garten. Free admission.
