Dance No 2°

2021

Dance No 2° takes you on a timeless journey. Earthy, Minimalist, and Powerful. It redefines our connection to Earth, a dance which brings you home.

Rediscover how human existence is influenced by the water, land, and elements we live with, Dance No 2° is set in an infinite landscape of waves and rolling hills, hypnotic oceans and vivid deserts.

Lead by its cinematic soundtrack, a minimal setting, and danced with raw and sustainable fashion, the piece examines how the land we live on and the planet we inhabit shapes us. Our body becomes a planet, and the planet our home.
