Gertrude Won´t Dance
„Gertrude won´t dance“ is a dance that isn´t a dance. It is a choreography of indescribable emotions, complicate steps of communication and music of the mind.
Beauty of movements, magic of timing, harmony and dis-harmony - this is a theatre performance that can be watched and understood the same way as music is listened.
„Gertrude won´t dance“ is a play combining artists from different theatres of Chemnitz, Germany, and from Finland, Catalonia, Czech Republic, and USA to create a performance of a complete, new format, almost algorithmicly complex and very simple at the same time.
