A piece full of fantasy and humour, impressive situations and surprising twists.›piece‹ gives the audience space to conjure up its own images. Snatches of everyday life: a little piece of life on stage...
She’s cute but dangerous. She has red hair and incredibly long legs, and she dances – my God – like no one’s ever danced before. Simply too beautiful to be true! In a wonderfully ironic monologue, Caroline Simon imaginatively fabricates an ideal world on stage. Her words describe an elaborate dance spectacle that evolves into a heart-rending love story and ultimately presents a very different picture to the dancer we see on stage.
›stück‹ (piece) was nominated for the Cologne Dance Award 2008 and selected for presentation by the European festival Aerowaves.
