In Between Festivals
s h i f t s : „FESTINA LENTE”
Malgven Gerbes │David Brandstätter
Who is spectator? Who is performer? Festina Lente – make haste slowly is blurring the boundaries.
The audience will give impulses to the dancers and set them into motion. It appears like a simple game at first, but as the piece unfolds and time and space materialise, one’s own way of dealing with expectations is revealed. With joyful ease Festina Lente generates its dynamic out of the moment.
«With its Festina Lente, shifts is once again challenging the playful experience of different intensities, on a physical, mental and emotional level.» Zitty Berlin
«Festina Lente is a magical choreography that leaves it to the audience to listen, to listen to the others and to be carried away by the rhythm of the dance. It feels like a new story is starting over every time.» La Dépêche
