Memories can cause a somnambulistic drift, and the short piece «buzzing memories» takes precisely this moment as its starting point. Coming from complete silence, three dancers forge their paths through the room, their associations manifest gently, image sequences of the past become visible. Remembering as a fundamentally human ability is a colourful dance of perceptions and emotions that cannot be contained and which can become alive for others if certain elements come together. How can memories be shared, where are the fractures, how changeable are memories and what do we do with them collectively? Gradually the dancers become aware of each other, imitate each other, create tension in encounters and finally find a community that unfolds with an intense dynamic. Memories become adventures and games we all partake in.

«Buzzing memories» was created in 2019 as one of three short pieces of an international cooperation between the three inclusive dance companies Danza Mobile (Spain), BewegGrund (Switzerland) und tanzbar_bremen (Germany) and was initiated and facilitated by the NO LIMITS festival Berlin.

Duration: 20 minutes
