What a time to be alive

A sharp feel-good tragedy

In the dance performance What a time to be alive, four women with a perfect image in a smoothly polished world go on a road trip. Fasten your seatbelts, straight toward that manufacturable goal. Light turns green. Drive; don't stand still.

With infectious energy and unprecedented unity, they push each other to show the best versions of themselves. The pace is high, the possibilities are unlimited and the self-designed horizon glitters in the distance. Under the skin, though, tensions are slowly bubbling up. Pats: light turns yellow. Put the brakes on. The inside screams for something that the outward display cannot show. What happens when the oh-so-perfect picture of yourself suddenly crashes?

With What a time to be alive, dance collective MAN || CO advocates for a realistic attitude toward manufacturability and the pursuit of perfection. The friction between the inner urge and the outward display always remains. While we laugh out loud every now and then, let's tackle this paradox together.
