Körper questions the unconscious way most of us live our lives. We all have our own different rituals which serve to reaffirm our idea of self and nurse our ego, but we rarely stop to consider what we actually base our choices on. Are we really in control of who we grow up to be? What made us who we are, and what happens if you don’t conform to the expectations of society.

NEON is a choreographical collective that consists of Nanna Hanfgarn Jensen (DK) & Leon Emil Franzke (DE). The two dancers/makers met at ArtEZ Dance Academy. NEON takes the audience out of their daily routines and gives them a physical sensory experience.
