„Full moon“ by Josef Nadj / Cie Atelier 3+1

Josef Nadj’s most recent work, „Full moon“, features seven out of the eight dancers who were part of his previous show, „Omma“. The new piece intends to build on the foundations laid by „Omma“, delve deeper into the themes touched upon, and explore new aspects.

The title of the piece, „Full moon,“ refers to the cosmos and the process of creation. With its four phases representing renewal and transformation, the moon could serve as a rhythmic guide for the piece. The dancers will use their memories to express their individual identities and unique qualities through the earth’s rhythms and energies.
