The encounter takes place in a system with clearly marked entrances and exits. We all have directions to follow. The actual distances are impossible to grasp. We may watch the scenario from a distance but can only navigate in close proximity. We move through a landscape. We walk in an ever-accelerating nature. We hallucinate. Slowly, the surroundings wear on our imagination. We must dare to move, get lost and follow dead ends to see through the logic that is present.

The Labyrinth is a new choreographic work by choreographer Marie Topp in close collaboration with lighting designer Mårten K. Axelsson and composer Julia Giertz. The Labyrinth is the first work in a new series, consisting of three reflections on time and existence, staged in different formats, spaces and temporalities. What it means to be alive and how we imagine what it is to be dead, are themes that are pervasive in this series. The works will process the relationship between the inner and outer worlds and reflect on what existence is in a world of decay.
