Who am I? Where do I come from? What do I look like? What can I do? What am I interested in? What do I love? What’s special about me? How do I move? I often have trouble feeling comfortable with myself. I’m not really sure who I am, how I want to be and how others perceive me. I am quickly influenced by my friends, my idols or my family. Sometimes I realize what I have in common with others, and sometimes I see how different I am.
Between that what shapes us and that what makes us unique and that which connects us to other people, we find our identities. Through language but most of all our gestures, movements and in dance we are in constant exchange with our surroundings: in Außer mir we discover through dance the uniqueness and commonality in each one of us.
