A performance about the strong force of the free mind when the laws of time and space have ceased to exist.
In one of our biggest productions, Memory Wax, with its minimalistic and strong stage language, meet eight dancers from the vigorous Cuban Danza Teatro Retazos in a captivating performance. Together, the companies with perspectives from different parts of the world have turned and twisted questions concerning limits and boundlessness. Possible Impossible takes off from a landscape where the known laws of time, space and power have ceased to exist. Imagine an associative world of magic, dreams and absurd impressions – where one dream relieves the next, and you fall, fly and balance between reality and fantasy. In this surprising world of dreams, the door opens to other universes, where the mind is free and the impossible becomes possible.
Possible Impossible was awarded with the Villanueva prize from the Cuban UNEAC (la Unión de Escritores y Artistas de Cuba) in 2015.
Can also be booked as a filmed performance with a personal (filmed) greeting from one of the dancers. If you want to work more around the themes of the show, you can take part of our teacher’s guide and book a digital workshop in connection with the screening of the show.
