Mistakes explores the manifestation of missteps and preferences on the stage. In it, five dynamic and highly skilled dancers share the stage with three experimental and groovy musicians resulting in electrifying encounters. It plays with the aesthetics of excessiveness, overflow, and physical fatigue and asks whether mistakes are something to be corrected or just an inevitable part of the psychedelic flow of life.


Ultimately, Mistakes is simply a pure physical burst of joy, dance, and music.

The piece is available for touring.
