Everybody is at one time or another afraid of the dark. The uncertainty of not knowing what is going to happen and of what you cannot see. Everyone likes the light! Warmth and security.
Three dancers explore in a playful way the world of light and dark.
The beauty of the stars which twinkle in the night sky or the sun which suddenly brings us warmth. The beauty and magic of creating a fire or a scintillating wild dance , the wonder of a lamp bulb which goes on and off and a comforting torch in the night.
And if the light goes out does nothing exist anymore? Is the dark always scary? Is it always safe when there is light? And what do we actually see when we see nothing?
In a bewitching performance of fiery poetic dance Day-dark takes you on a journey of discovery through darkness with magical moments of light, in a fantasy journey of dreams through life itself.
