In the new creation of Budapest Dance Theatre cooperation, collaboration appears, which is set into focus as the opposite of the competing attitude of our society. With collaboration, among extreme circumstances, we can step over the obstacles of our egos and we can defeat our selfishness deriving form our fears. Is it utopian to favour the interest of society over the individual?
By the use of extreme situations the company draws attention to the interdependence of humans, the cooperation as a catalyst and trust, without these we all stand paralysed when facing challenges.
One can not reach alone such aims, which can be reached together. We are not able to fly, which is a long-desired dream of mankind, but when our fellows stand beside, or rather under us, we are able to experience levitation as well.
