Dewey Dell
Sleep Technique — A response to the cave at Chauvet-Pont d’Arc in the Ardèche, France

  • Fri 03.03.17 20 h
  • Sat 04.03.17 20 h

Albeit inaccessible to the public, the cave at Chauvet-Pont d’Arc in the Ardèche houses the oldest rock paintings found to date. Reason enough for Italian performance collective, Dewey Dell, to take the audience on a poetic journey right to the origins of European culture. In a powerful interplay of choreography, music, stage design and lighting, they enter into dialogue with how we possibly feel connected to traces of our forebears’ myths and rituals today.
