The composed evening; Farm in the Cave gives the audience a chance to not only look inside different cultures, but also into the life of an ensemble thought-out a period of ten years.

Abstract

The Journey gives the audience a chance to not only look inside different cultures, but also into the life of an ensemble. Farm in the Cave members share with us their search over 10 years of existence: through video recordings performers are confronted with the people who gifted them with their stories, songs, rhythms and dance steps, and became part of their lives. 

There´s something quite hypnotic about „The Journey“ in the way it translates specific emotions and experiences into music and dance … into intricate, if equally immediate, portrait of an unseen people inhabiting a rapidly vanishing culture.“ Joseph Fahim, Masress
