if I was real
Guest Appearance by the TanzTheaterMünster

»There is not love of life, without despair about life.« (Camus)

In his essay »l’envers et l’endroit/ Betwixt and Between« Camus reflects his feelings of alienation in a world, which he perceived to be paradox, in which human life is fundamentally absurd, but which is nevertheless worth living, even happily. In »if I was real« eight dancers oscillate in a split space between these two poles: creating images full of secret hidden coherencies, which seem simultaneously strange and familiar. Created in 2013 for her own company, Toula Limnaios has now created a new version for and with the TanzTheaterMünster.

»Astonishing how Toula Limnaios and her company reinvent themselves over and over again.«
(Neues Deutschland, Karin Schmidt-Feister, 2013)
»Whereas in ›if I was real‹, she surprisingly leaves fate, pain and suffering behind and takes off into a round dance of festive-wild beauty.« (kulturradio, Frank Schmid, 2013)
