Choreography: Bára Sigfúsdóttir

being has developed through the encounter of Icelandic choreographer and dancer Bára Sigfúsdóttir and the two Tehran artists Masoumeh Jalalieh and SeyedAlireza Mirmohammadi. Starting from the body as the common ground, they explore and compare Western European with Iranian (and thus also Middle Eastern) culture and society in order to create a dialogue. The encounter between the bodies on stage, but also between the bodies and the audience, serves as a sober gesture.
