About The Desert is Growing: Woe to Those Who Seeks to Protect It. The Desert Grows: Woe to Him in Whom Deserts Hide...

In a large room dancers are accompanied by opera music. The subjects are co-existence and dialogue, and the subjects are accentuated by the two choreographers. They stand 17 years apart, have different backgrounds and very different physical appearances, and they seem to be archetypical opposites in an impossible co-existence. Political references are always obvious in the work of Impure Company.

The desert is growing: woe to those whom seeks to protect it The desert grows: woe to him in whom deserts hide...  is a production by Impure Company and Lujd.
