It all starts when a group of six people meet in an undefined space and simultaneously say the same phrase: Luckily, we are going in the same direction. From that moment on, they start walking towards the back, looking at the ever-changing landscape, like a multiplied figure from a romantic painting. Over countless nights and days, they merge with the space and become the paysage themselves.
Fatamorgana – choreographed by Paweł Sakowicz – is a dance piece focusing on covering and uncovering the (romantic) landscape. The intricate light, space and sound design explore the concept of night as a mystery that makes ordinary things, sounds and bodies seem different and eerie. The group of wanderers move cautiously: sometimes in extreme slow motion, other times trembling with the excitement of the unknown.
