Newton’s third law describes the relationship between different forces. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. But what happens when us humans crash into each other? This is the starting point for the street dance performance 3rd. It’s about our lifestyle and our consumption. About the consequences our actions as individuals, society and culture have on a global scale. About what happens when the choices of our ancestors and our own generation catches up with us. With an incredibly tight interaction, and a presence and sensitivity in every movement, this is a performance that is both quietly poetic yet explosively forceful.
“With a direct communication between the dancers and the audience, 3rd is a street performance that we fell for instantly. Strong, beautiful and with a feeling for both form and content that is pulsating with energy.” – Hanna Uddenberg and Malin Enberg
