InDignity

-
Erwin-Schrödinger-Saal
Plenary / Performance
english language

“InDignity” is the result of an unprecedented attempt of collaboration between a European and a Syrian dancer. Benedikt and Khaddour, who felt time was ripe to embark on a journey in search for the meaning of dignity in a contemporary context, strive to convey what words cannot express through their bodies.
