This production is a thought-provoking mixture of movement, enthusiastic dance, drama and set design. »Wenn du kommst ...gehe ich!« (»When you come ... I go!«) examines man's increasing alienation and isolation. Entertainment value and a variety of styles characterise the images of loneliness, love-hate relationships, selfishness, aggression and the rules of society. These are further enhanced by the use of voice and text.

This up-and-coming group from Zurich, under the artistic direction of Hansjörg Hellinger, is well-known in Swiss dance circles. Each of the dancers has been trained in classical ballet as well as in modern dance. Before working as a choreographer, Hellinger danced with the Zurich Dance Theatre and with Contemporary Dance Paula Lansley.

»First-class avant-garde modern dance was the order of the day ... « (Trierischer Volksfreund, 04.06.1991).
