About the performance
"Nights don't have names"

The night, the silent oasis.

The bass and the dance; the sirens that beckon.

An irresistible inner revolt

"Nights don't have names is a tribute to the unconditional essence of the night. It is a bodily revolt to break free and a longing to let the body gass up, thatto feel and to dance. An ongoing, multifaceted spectrum of experiences, associations andreflections occur.

Nights don't have names is a solo piece played in a stripped-down room. The roomturns into a cross between a stage room and a dance floor shared by the audiencewith the dancer and the music.
