where emotion and reflection go hand in hand


dadadans creates socio-poetical performances that make an impact.

You can find  dadadans on the traditional stage, in art museums, on the streets in direct contact with everyday life, on the internet, on the mobile phone…

The company’s work is engaged with and sensitive to today’s society changing structures and our human social interaction.

We want to make the audience laugh and cry – by mirroring the banal realities of life as well as its poetic beauty.
