Rainer Behr, dancer with the Wuppertaler Tanztheater, accepted a commission from the Tanzlandschaft Ruhr to create a new work with a cast of seven dancers. This production represented his much anticipated return to choreography after a break of five years in which he has concentrated on his own performing career.
Seen through the eyes and actions of a company of seven young dancers, his new work is an exploration of the contrasting human conditions of intimacy and isolation that is charged with both reticence and sheer unadulterated joy.
