It's alive. It's breathing. It's moving. Muffled, like in water. Is it animal? Plant? Human?

Organic, anyway, and most peculiar. It intertwines, surges, contracts, stretches, crawls, prances, rolls. Legs like feelers, hulls without heads, moving sculpture, archaic poses and always surprising moments of breathtaking harmony of forms and movements.

An underwater fantasy in green and blue of disconcerting, sometimes unsettling beauty is the new body illusion theatre of the editta braun company. Supported by Thierry Zaboitzeff's masterfully atmosphere-creating compositions between distorted piano sounds, meditative bubbling and hammering beats, three dancers in skin-tight full body suits let the viewer dive into a world of gentle waves that is both primeval and futuristic at the same time. Do the blue-green water creatures originate from a genetic laboratory or are they pioneers of a new evolutionary process that will repopulate our planet after the demise of the species Homo sapiens? This time without the right of the strongest and competition, without the right of the strongest to eat and be eaten. Beyond good and evil, in a time or world before or after this distinction, this organism is pure life that lives, breathes, moves. Until the end.
