Gravity, an inclusive performance by Un-Label, brings two performers on stage.
Two people, of whom one can't see and the other can't hear, apparently can't dialogue with each other. Their meeting takes place on the subway. In a moment of touch, they discover a mutual attraction and a symbiosis of non obvious communicative paths emerges. From this Gravity flows.
Gravity is a dance performance of 1 hour, in which the script originates from audio-description for the blind. Un-Label surprisingly reverses the creation process and questions inclusive communication. Sign language and Visual Vernacular will also be incorporated in the choreography.
The interdisciplinary, mixed-abled performing arts collective Un-Label stands for artistic innovation and diversity. It unites artists from all over Europe. Their performances with artists with and without restrictions set new standards within the performing arts.
