„Kann der Flügelschlag eines Schmetterlings in Brasilien einen
Tornado in Texas auslösen?“
"Can the flapping of a butterfly's wings in Brazil cause a tornado in Texas?"
Edward N. Lorenz asked himself this question in 1972, referring to the unpredictability of long-term consequences. The magic, but also the power that emanates from every little action, determine what happens on stage. Everything can be a beginning with an infinite end: fleeting encounters become complicity, a sound becomes music, a casual touch becomes dance. Everything is interwoven, each of our actions carries weight and triggers change. For the performers there is a balancing act between impending chaos and the sensual power to see, hear, feel and dance with impulses.
„In the Amazonian jungle a butterfly flaps its wings, and then a storm devastates half of Europe“.
Five dancers and one musician confront the unpredictability of the present. Every action triggers a chain of consequences for the whole.
This interdependence shows us that it‘s not just obvious events such as huge earthquakes, the decisions of powerful politicians or huge population movements that change the world. The whole world is interconnected in a series of chaotic relationships, and our smallest decisions can unleash a tornado.
