Specific people creates specific problems

specific people create specific problems is a wild ride into the unknown. Five choreographers from five different countries in Africa, Europe and Asia team up to explore their otherness and alikeness. Temporary communities emerge as the result of this collaboration, resonating with the differences they have carved out. Through games of togetherness, physical poetry, songs and surprise they try to stick together. The performers oscillate between the visible and the invisible, the tangible and the abstract, constantly provoking and challenging the audience.
