still going WRONG

still going WRONG invites you to a rendezvous with five dancers who seek happiness in perfection but find joy in the mistakes that create unforeseen life.

On stage the dancers confess, fight and battle their own and others people’s mistakes. It’s a chaos of sweaty hands, flushed cheeks and busy feet trying to run away. The shame and embarresment of being mistaken is defused and disarmed through humor.

“We kissed in a mosque.” “I was born in the wrong body.” “Is it a mistake to revive a dying patient on the way to the hospice?”

In the year before the making of still going WRONG dadadans has annimated open workshops, set up physical and virtual mailboxes and asked people to donate their own mistakes stories, quotes and thoughts. This has given an infinite ocean of mistakes, defects and errors to fish inspiration in.
