More about UtoSafari

UtoSafari by Numb Safari AKA Nummen Safari is about risk and relations, about being alone and about being two or three. Which feelings are allowed within the different relations? How lonely can one be among others? Is it necessary to be two to be happy? Is it really so that all good things come in threes?

UtoSafari starts with a dance performance, continues with dialogue between children and performers and is ended with a workshop in which the children can examine the room and the theme with the dancers. Numb Safari wants to provide the children with experiences they can feel in their own bodies, physically and emotionally and to ask them to reflect over their own background and experiences. Through the work children are met as equals. The foundation is an attitude that opposite answers to the same question can be as right.

UtoSafari is a dance production exploring physical meetings between performers and the room. From being gentle and helpful to bickering, tumbling, fighting and crossing the line. It is about knowing one’s own limits, setting one’s own limits, being safe in one’s own body and taking care of each other. Connotations to animals, playing and other movements with which children can identify have been a basis for exploring the expressions of movement.

The production is made in and related to the mobile performance venue Utoskop.
