«Gravitas» is a study about the limits of gravity. What happens if we ignore our habits and try to oppose gravity? What happens if we subject ourselves to it? All the dancers require for exploring these issues is a large inflatable mattress. They stand on their heads, throw themselves at one another, lift one another up, find their footing and offer support. The beauty of this impressive mixture of dance, capoeira and acrobatics is the way it links extremely physical effort with the artistic lightness of the dancer's floating and falling movements.
«Gravitas» can also be seen on Wed 31.8. at 5 pm on Goetheplatz.Trailer
