Venue: TQW/Halle G
Introduction: Fri, Apr 15 and Sat, Apr 16, 20:30 at the TQW/Studios

Fifteen dancers repeatedly cross the stage, untiringly. They walk, run, fall, stand up, run, stop, and start from the beginning again, driven by an inexplicable compulsion to move. From the repetition of phrases and patterns and following the constant increase in the rhythm of the work, a choreography full of visual power and compelling energy emerges, whose infectiousness is hard to escape.
In Sideways Rain the Brazilian choreographer Guilherme Botelho and his Swiss company have created a physical metaphor of life, which seems to slip away from the dancers: on journeys through the interlocking universe of light, sound and scenery, the impressive simplicity of their movements widens to include the direction towards complex questions of the human condition against the background of a world that is in a state of constant transformation.
