Many years after the active phase in their careers has ended, five former ballet dancers come back on stage. Together with the choreographer Doris Uhlich, they worked on their outlook toward life over the course of a year. Starting from the internalized traces of strict control of the body and work-related hierarchies, they were interested in daring new prospects: What is the power resting here and now in these ‘disciplined’ bodies?
