LABYRINTH: A dance performance by Grupo Oito

The winding paths of everyday life are not the same for everyone. Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination exert violence in different ways on people. The Berlin-based choreographer and dancer Ricardo de Paula and the company Grupo Oito follow the traces of this violence, search for dance paths through the social labyrinth and, with the help of fantasy and spirituality, for rituals of healing.

Using their own bodies and postcolonial theories as a starting point, they explore transformative potentials to reveal new ways of seeing and accessing their own power and strength. The audience follows this idea through a space where stage and audience space merge and where a fantastic world opens up with countless possibilities, visions and support.
