BEFORE is a dance and acrobatics show, currently under construction, that focuses on the moment just before we are about to do something we have never done before.

What happens physically in ones body and mind during the moments before taking that leap of faith?

How can we cope with different emotions such as fear and anxiety?

How can we prepare?

How does social codes ( live and digital ) affect the way we present ourselves?

With the performance we aim to inspire people, youths-adults that are interested in dance, acrobatics, visual arts and music to go out and dare.
We dare you to:

– Go and apply for that new job!
– Sign up for that strange ( or cool ? ) looking arts class you like so much.
– Ask the person you like out on a date <3
– Be honest with who you are!

Research for the performance took place in the autumn of 2021 with support from “Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien im Programm NEUSTART KULTUR, Hilfsprogramm DIS-TANZEN des Dachverband Tanz Deutschland”.
