From Goethe Institut:

Me – us, monochromatic – multichromatic colors, individual – collective, personal – joint story are fragments that in moments of connection create a colorful, spontaneous, hence captivating picture.

L’EGO – The pieces of a moment is a co-creation with influences from contemporary dance, hip hop and jazz theater. There is talk of beauty, identity and individual people, of subtle connections, emotional exchange and the many colours and shades of every moment of life
