The dance performance “Between Dreams and Drowning” by Ursel Tilga and Steffi Pähn is a collaboration performance between Paide Theater and Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava. digs into the sometimes disastrous aftermath of loving, falling in love, and being loved. This piece is a search for the raw essence of these winged and often abstract principles.
Wine-red and gray. Fug. A hint of the most pleasant and exciting perfume.
Living room. Two bodies climbing on each other to escape from drowning, even though the liquid suffocating them is still unknown.
Laying on the bed. My hand moves towards her. Air is starting to freeze. There´s a wall between us.
Every following thought feels wrong. Should I say something? When I touch her, she doesn´t respond. Cold, distant.
Smoking a cigarette on the window. Am I awake?
