“Between Dreams and Drowning” 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. Two performers will repeatedly face their fears and push through boundaries until there’s no other option for them than to drown: all for the sake of love. “Between Dreams and Drowning” is a collaboration performance between Paide Teater and Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava.
The theme of the production touches a very large number of audiences and we hope that love will literally bring people together in the theatre. Recognisable joys, embarrassments and pain, feelings and thoughts that society often does not allow us to express.
The title and idea of the production is a collaboration between Ursel Tilga (Paide Theatre) and Belgian dance artist Lore Borremans. The production of the same name will also be performed in Belgium in the 2020/2021 season by L. Borremans.
