Daniel Linehan invites nine dancers of different generations to reflect on the role of dance in their lives. Why do you choose to dance? What motivates you to continue? When does dance start, and when does it end?

In 2019 Linehan created the solo performance Body of Work in which he reflects on his own history of dancing. Revisiting some of the same intimate questions that he asked himself, he gives the dancers of Kiss The One We Are with their own diverse histories the space to reflect on what it is to experience life and the surrounding world through the lens of dance. In what ways can dance connect us with one another and with the other dances that take place all around us: the play of animals, the movement of plants, the rhythm of an ocean, the dance of atomic particles continually vibrating and interacting. …? In asking these questions, together they reflect on the meaning of dance itself.

With the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union in the frame of Dance On, Pass On, Dream On.

In partnership with BOS+, Hiatus contributes to the reforestation of our planet.
