Not on this Earth - Keren Rosenberg
The Void of Longing
If we were to be given the possibility to re-create a new space based on everything that we know, what kind of space will it be? What value system will it hold?
On stage two bodies are constructing and deconstructing a new piece of land, with their bodies and for their bodies. Their journeys is tough and demanding. The land is fake and unyielding, the sound threatens to flood it all, their energy and flesh is their only driving force. But the whispers of their souls are pure and loud: together they will form a new skin. NOT ON THIS EARTH - The Void of Longingis a physical and spiritual journey that seeks to bring the body back in time - to its primal roots, to its essential form: boundless and pure. It is a prayer for freedom from the social restrictions of gender, nationality, color and religion.
Her presentation (...) has been a strong and intensive moment. The audience has been through a deep experience, with a lot of images, truly embodied by these two generous performers.*
