Land Before Time (Sweden) – […IT IS CONTAINED IN…]

Free of charge.


Duration: 30 min. 

[…it is contained in…] is a tribute to water, our greatest life source. The duo is exploring the different qualities that water has and how it reminds us to stay connected to our natural surroundings and relearn some of our fundamental needs to become more human: Feel, adapt, remember, connect, communicate, be. 

The performance is an honest journey together through nothing and something, little and much, silence and harmonies, stillness and movement. “If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water” – Loren Eiseley.
