Friday 10 nov. 7 p.m, Frityren

True stories. Brutal truths. Reflective, touching and honest about how war impacts children`s lives.

Vice Versa is a captivating documentary performance about survival, loss, conflict, destruction and how to hold a seed of hope, optimism and dignity alive.

Vice Versa is a multi-media performance, which is compelling in its way that it speaks about some of the most difficult things we can speak about: the impact of war on the individual and more specific on the lives and experiences of children.

We believe that both dance and visual art have the potential to speak about the world we live in a poetic and imaginative way without becoming too literally. To create a space for our audiences to reflect upon the offer we make.
