Everybody loves a good story. Stories can be told in a myriad of ways: through the strokes of a brush, the rhythm of music, the movement of bodies. MILIEU 2019, presented by Frontier Danceland, brings together two exciting choreographers, Marioenrico D'Angelo (Italy) and Sita Ostheimer (Germany), to share their new stories in a mesmerizing double-bill.
In "Skinny Dipping", Marioenrico D'Angelo (Italy) makes his debut for Frontier Danceland, delving into the dichotomy between hesitance and the freedom that comes with letting go. After the successful premiere of Mångata in 2016, Sita Ostheimer (Germany) returns with a second creation for the company "Nowhere but 2.5 meters", a research into the power and limitations of rhythm as a means of communication.
