Nov 18-20. Synchronization in process / Anne-Mareike Hess
Synchronization in process, the new dance work by Anne-Mareike Hess (LU/DE) is a choreographic essay on our constant striving for global synchronicity and a balanced ecology of time on a social, cultural as well as economical level.

The audience is invited into a vibrant space in which sound, light and three performers indulge into the extremes of the subtle, yet all-pervading forces of synchronization – a constant negotiation of approaching each other and grooving into inside and outside rhythms that culminates into a dense fabric of interwoven relations.
