Young emerging dance makers tell stories with strong roots in the traditions and customs of their native soil.

The first piece, Free at last, is based on a well-known Greek myth about the struggle for independence. As a sign of resistance, a group of women dance their last dance on the edge of a cliff. A penetrating dance piece about the cycle of life and traditions that are passed on from generation to generation.

The dance piece The Mourning is a love story, farce and tragedy in one. Choreographer Erika Silgoner uses her Sicilian background to create a lively and cinematic choreography with eight dancers. Sadness, humor, irony, passion and hilarious moments alternate. Silgoner manages to hold the audience's attention from start to finish.
