About the performance
Human imagination has always been fuelled by ideas about life beyond the here and now, beyond this world, beyond the possibilities of ordinary existence. How to transcend yourself, the limitations of the human body and mind, the limitations of our planet. To travel to other worlds, to meet other intelligences that may exist somewhere. Once upon a time, a man tried to establish contact with life outside of himself through magic and religious customs, then through science, tried to travel to the moon, today through the research of artificial intelligence, which is supposed to finally surpass the human mind. What the future holds for us is, of course, uncertain, but it is certain that a man will persist in his path of spreading awareness and getting to know the world, and discovering worlds that have been unknown to him so far.
Meet the choreographers of the Borderless Triptych and have an inside look at the short studio rehearsals for the choreographic evening "To the Moon and Back."
