This feeling makes us restless, happy or melancholic. It drives us forward and lets us relive the past. Three choreographers investigate the bittersweet feeling of longing.

What are our desires? How individual are our longings? Why does a longing arise and how does it unfold? How do you express longing through dance? We collected questions and answers, texts and songs, we reflected and wandered down different paths. Three pieces were created for 4 or 5 dancers with titels such as «neighbours garden» or «(w)hole». The choreographies by Natalie Wagner, Anja Gallagher and Maggie Bergeron show images and emotions instead of depicting specific stories. The three piece dance evening will be performed at the End of May 2014 in Berne, Switzerland.
