About the piece
The performance explores different forms of dialogue. The words in silence, the interaction between the space and performers. Das Wüstenland is german for Desert, we are exploring the idea of being in this desert even if maybe it's a fictional one but we have to cross it. What happens deep inside of us? The dialogue with ourselves that pushes us to cross an impossible task. what force takes over.
