a new work by Ermira Goro and Hannes Langolf
Premiere: 1-2 April 2017, Main Stage, Onassis Cultural Centre - Athens
“With DANDELION we want to dive into the inner world of our human obstacles and inhibitions and find a way to reveal the joy of stepping over our own thresholds or celebrating even the mere attempt.”
"This project marks a point of departure for both of us into exploring our own language and seeing where our interests and way of working meet. The last 9 years have shaped an artistic bond between the two of us that forms a perfect starting point for artistic collaboration – trust, support and mutual freedom. Our interest does not lie in merging our ways of working but to join forces to see if this project can be a chance to widen our artistic method. We think of this collaboration as much as a clash as we think of it as a amalgamation."
It feels that more and more we live in a world where the time and patience for human connection and inner sensitivity is becoming a precious value and something that needs a more conscious decision to hold on to and contribute. We talked a lot about how an honest relationship with the people around us can make us go beyond our own insecurities and obstacles and make us more courageous, a fuller version of ourselves and therefore experience life just that little bit more glorious.
