Simone Aughterlony, Petra Hrašćanec & Saša Božić (CH/DE/NZ & HR & HR)
Water splashes, wine is drunk and spilled and there is never any land in sight. Two strong women drift on the high seas in the remains of what may once have been a ship. They are on an odyssey. Like castaways in their own inner lives, they travel as a pair, but ultimately, each of them remains lonely and by herself. Simone Aughterlony, originally from New Zealand, and Croatian dancer Petra Hrašćanec, are drifting on the waves of tough times. Tangled ropes, canvas, a bull’s skull, bones and ram horns accompany them on their expedition inspired by Homer’s Odyssey and the novel trilogy The Notebook, The Proof and The Third Lie by Ágota Kristóf. To live music by Hahn Rowe, they dance and sway, undergo transformations and, in passing, create a metaphor for Europe in its current, troubled state.
