Hooman Sharifi, Impure Company
Skal have en titel

This performance doesn’t have a title, but will get one in the end, when you as an audience can invent one according to your experience. The performance pushes your imagination and makes you wonder and explore how you percieve others, what you dream of, and how you experience the world around you.

What happens to our experiences when we watch from a new angle? What difference will it make if we experience something on close hand or from far away? You can test that yourselves during the performance, as you may sit under or next to – and close by or further away. You can swop your seating as we go along. It will play a role in the end, when you get to reflect on what you experienced – and give a name to the performance.
