EXODUS TO HOPELAND
with Internationales Tanz-Theater Festival Hannover
Hopeland, this place where everything is possible
but only one can get in.
Taking a reality show on television and the media world today as reference, Miquel G. Font developed a sarcastic way of making see how in our times people depend on the image they deliver to society making them lose their roots and principles in order to be successful.
With an intense working process, a challenge of high level concentration and memory and the shootings of this "real" television show, Internationales Tanz-Theater Hannover was the first entity to invite Miquel G. Font to experiment with no limits with a group of dancers more ready to travel beyond.
This piece was designed to be rebuilt from zero with different companies.
The theme, the structure and the basis of the work would always be the same, but the creation of each movement from the beginning would be remade again, as it was done 4 years later with Jeune Ballet d'Aquitaine, becoming a completely new piece, EXODE.
