How are we to survive? A question that burns inside the bodies of six of Liquid Loft’s dancers as soon as they enter the stage together with Viennese rock experimentalists Bulbul in this world premiere. L.I.F.E stands for “Living In Funny Eternity”. The enticing title promises that this "Dream on Live-Screen" in a hybrid space between stage and live video won't get the least bit gloomy.. Future visionary bodies dance through a fun eternity, even though the piece is about a planet that “seems to be lurching towards its end”. A series of balancing acts on the tightrope of our paradoxical conditions: veiling as a show and manifestation, the pain of existence as a science fiction bacchanal!
