Foreign body_trio

Bodies that do not fit within the framework of society are treated as foreign bodies and are ultimately rejected. 

The choreographer wants to look at society through three such different bodies. 

The unfamiliar body forms that the three bodies create, turn over stereotypes about the body. 

This performance explores how the audience perceives them and questions the meaning of „foreignness“ in our society.
