Nuno Lucas


a coming community

Mousonturm Saal


Whatever happens: the four dancers Pieter Ampe, Guilherme Garrido, Hermann Heisig and Nuno Lucas clearly share an interest in rough and tumble poetry and drastic humour. In a coming community, they attempt to find out what else they have in common. In constellations of two and two, all four have already quite successfully performed at almost all European dance festivals. Now the multinational quartet wants to performatively reinvent itself as a dynamic group, a reliable team, an indestructible troupe in search of new frontiers . Their scheme turns into a trial of nerves, eyes, ears and finally all body parts as constantly new, exorbitant special requests must be integrated into the communal social structure. But if a coming community can be sure of one thing, it is their honest ambition to simply give everything in order to produce an overwhelming sensation out of even the most banal of ideas.
