In six video portraits, seven young people from Dresden concentrate on their family traditions. What do you do that your parents or grandparents have already done? Which traditions are important to you? Which could be done away with? Are traditions a thing of the past? Do they keep you back? Or are they a launch pad for the future? Seven young people from the tjg.theaterakademie watch the video portraits and respond by dancing. How does the story “move” me – in terms of content, emotionally, physically? The audience sits in the middle of a walkable dance and video installation and experiences the videos and dancers up close.
