A visualisation of dance perfomances
The Basement is about young people that have built up a barricade around themselves. Six performers, musicians and dancers, give them a voice and a body. They are unstable and extreme. During the performance, the defensive walls are broken open.
The theme of The Basement is the process of disarmament: fighting and wrestling to regain a little bit of innocence.
Combining different actions of the play into a photo collage, the core of the story comes out in the visual effects: a person in conflict with himself; boiling of hatefulness; treated with love.
