MYKA
Rumrejsen

Space rockets, stardust, glitter and moon magic. Two dancing extraterrestrials invite you on a physical, imaginative and sensuous space travel, where you get to be part of the story. Together with the dancers, you move around in the solar system and sense what it’s like to be weightless.

We look at the stars together, listening to their song, and through movement, dance and music, we create a joint movement narrative where we meet other extraterrestrials and can see, hear and sense the glittering stars of the space. We blow at stardust, fly wildly in a rocket, land on the moon and move silently and weightlessly around eachother – just like the planets and the solar system.
