Warrior by Anne-Mareike Hess

Seduced by the belief that a fierce strongman is all we need to get things done and save the world, choreographer Anne-Mareike Hess takes us on her journey of becoming a warrior. Within a distorted and yet soft soundscape emerges a profoundly poetic image of human fragility and inner disruption. A dancing body caught in a perpetual struggle with its emotions.

My enemy is my fear
And it takes my breath away
So I call to fight with love, open up my heart
I call you to fight with love, open up your heart
