Once a year Roots compagnie is organising a dance carousel in which we present a selection of smaller dance pieces connected by a common theme.
'Karuna', Sanskrit for 'mourning', is a contemporary dance performance in which the dancers of Roots Compagnie, guest performers and vulnerable young people share their relationship with the theme of 'mourning'. We all know the idea, somehow we've all been confronted with it, but how do we deal with it? What does the loss of a loved one, a beloved situation, an important place, a key object or core idea entail. What does this mean for us and where does it take us?
We offer customized movement and expression workshops also in conccetion with this performance. It is also possible to request one or more of the performances presented here to support such a workshop or just as a performance at your event.
In case you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
