While in battle I’m free, never free to rest

by Hooman Sharifi

Cullberg presents a meeting between the dancers of the Swedish dance company Cullberg and dancers from the street dance community, by the choreographer Hooman Sharifi. They influence each other and let their different backgrounds flavour the performance in various ways. The music by Neda Sanai is based on deconstructed Iranian folk songs.

From the battle the Dancers rise, as individuals and together. They spring from the fight, the resistance, the coexistence. From the will and necessity to make a stand for something that might be taken from you, and for the ability to use your own language.

Poetry by BAM – Burcu Sahin, Athena Farrokhzad and Merima Dizdarević.

… a feeling of quiet euphoria arises. A small step for our audience affinity, a big one for Hoomanism.
