Falling Earth

Falling Earth observes a human being from afar. Thematically, the movements were created for three different soils with three different relations to the ground.

During the creative process standing upright became an important basis for the choreography.

In Falling Earth abstraction and concrete concepts merge.

Although the piece starts from an all-embracing starting point, it boils down to a relationship drama through the thematic of the day.

I like to see a human being as a part of nature. The starting point of this piece is the moment when life is yet adopting forms on Earth
