Two figures dressed in white, electronic music and a drifting voice sending Yung Hurn’s dreams of and appeals to togetherness – “Baby, you wanna chill and stuff / Fly with me through Vienna and stuff ”– as well as the effect of pills into space in a loop. In this meditative, hypnotic dance trip through the spheres of the now, Ellen Furey from Montreal and London-based New York dance artist Malik Nashad Sharpe celebrate a future without authorities and constraints. They emerge from the darkness of the dancefloor until they reach a deep blue in which they abandon themselves completely in the rhythms of their unison movements. In the end, it becomes clear that this is to be understood as a movement of resistance.
