Animals strives to set free from the rule of human mind researching the emergence of senses, instinct and primitive reactions in movement. An on-going battle, unrivalled physical capacities, the comfort of a pack and on the other hand, the thrill of hunting alone. Can a human get closer to the animal inside?
Kinetic Orchestra’s Animals dwells in animal behaviour through the means of movement. The piece continues the series of movement-oriented pieces of the company. In the work partnering, acrobatics and contemporary dance seek their extremes.
