I’d like to see that everything obeys me, but so that… I won’t have to step on anyone
I make my own rules to the game. I can handle this, i make myself strong, I crawl and I jump.
I sit on two chairs at once, go to three schools and speak four languages.
I know I’m loud, I’ll give you tough battle.
I win and I lose and I learn and stumble, sometimes I mumble
When they want me to be humble I rumble until I crumble and drowse.
My rules are simple: I want no-one to nag me and no-one to bag me, I want to be a part of the gang and accepted as single. To sit among the big and be the hero to the small, I’m not a zero .
And be it said, that I won’t sit down with my mouth open so that someone else can stuff it with vitamins. I am full of vitality myself and have my own chair to tell right from wrong.
I want to become great… as the square root of time-space, to clarify the rules for everyone. Then we may play and have a good day.
But don’t forget I walk my way.
And you don’t take my toys without permission, if you don’t listen I will load my ammunition to stand my position
Don’t take my bag! Don’t come into my room! DON’T TOUCH MY STUFF! …without my permission
I want to stay friends as well as make friends
I just want to be cool in the end.
Because I go for contrast, thrill, rush and joy, foolish giggle, messy hair and good jokes… I like to do things backwards, SOMETIMES, or simply do them some other time, ANOTHER TIME.
ZUGA’s new production ‘2 + 2 = 22′ bores into rules and regulations, the seen and unseen arrangements in our shared lives as children and parents. The performance throws these arrangements around, sneaks aside and steps away, doesn’t offer the seat or sits on two chairs at once, yet invites to stand next to it and look for one’s own place. There is an effort to arrive at a destination, even if it is accompanied with a shout ‘Appropriate!’.
United dancers of ZUGA is a collective of dancers and choreographers that was created in year 1999 by then young and active dance-makers Tiina Mölder, Kaja Kann and Jarmo Karing. ZUGA United Dancers is the only company in Estonia that has consistently and regularly been producing dance performances for children. For ZUGA, children and adults are equal partners sharing the world and the room in which they live. Their performances have been awarded in the fields of dance and theatre. ZUGA’s children performances have been touring in Estonia and abroad (Finland, USA, Germany, Lithuania, Latvia, Nederland, Palestine, Sweden, Russia, Romania, Croatia, Poland, Great Britain, China).
