LÅR (THIGHS) – a playful show and a tribute to the thighs where they get to glitter and giggle!
The thighs are tired of being in the shadow, tired of being ignored and associated with feelings of embarrassment and annoyance. The thighs can change shapes and size like no other body part, they can jump, jiggle, change direction, twist, rub against each other, hug and wrestle. Now it is time for the thighs to shine, to break free, come into the light to show their potential for movement and looks. Finally they get to play the main part!
LÅR might be the beginning of something, a thought that awakes, a feeling that is recognised, cellulites and jiggling movements that are allowed to be – and that are affirmed as such. LÅR is a dance performance by two dancers, four thighs, to the beats of pop music.
From 12 years old.
