SUNRISE is a short piece created during the 2021 lockdown and performed online for the HIER=JETZT 2021 Dance Festival in Munich. 


SUNRISE is an invitation to rebirth, a song for two bodies, one manipulating the other.

It is the awareness of the infinity that orbits around us, it is the obsessive, cyclic and round repetition of nature in the moment of its awakening.


"Wake up my love, it's time to live again, to love again, to dance again."


SUNRISE is an unstoppable stream of rational and oneiric thoughts.




Dedicated with immense gratitude to choreographer, mentor and friend Ismael Ivo, who passed away the 9th of April 2021.

Text in the beginning:

„Time is passing at a speed I cannot describe
My skin, my thoughts, everything it’s aging ... but you are still there holding my hand before I fall

My dreams, or maybe my hopes
Someone said it’s just life stolen from a deep sleep
I will hug you then, I will protect you then
Why now everything looks so hazy? ... I find it so crazy.„
