Sometimes I face a decision like a crossroad: Do I do what seems right or what seems responsible? Reason – what exactly is this rational voice in my head? Where does it come from? What does it want? In the past my body used to be full of emotions. Now there are days in which I am just observing reason winning over emotions and putting my heart in a narrow box: „too dangerous, too expensive, too much, too little, …“ But my heart does not know all those words. My heart knows feelings: It is joyful, it loves, it suffers, it jumps full of excitement. „I don’t need you.“, replies reason. „Without me you are lost” my heart says.
The company Körperverstand. Tanztheater Wien founded by Steffi Jöris and Anna-Luise Braune put emotion and reason face to face, fighting for their say in our life.
