“I feel alone. Even though I know that I have a caring family and good friends; even when I’m surrounded by others. All the while; I feel alone”.
The number of suicide attempts amongst 15 to 19 year-olds has tripled over the past ten years.
The dance performance AL+ONE (Al+Ene) addresses the bewildering emotions that occupy a significant portion of teenagers’ mindset. It contemplates breaking loose, being independent, belonging and defining oneself. Through dance, music and video the performance portrays the challenges one faces as a youth – from the lonely and gloomy to the beautiful and poetic. The show is created by choreographer Tali Rázga with music by the Danish Music Award winning jazz composer Jakob Bro.
