Economic depression - this term is no coincidence!

 

Four people and their states of exhaustion. Two dancers and choreographers, Gudrun Lange and Morgan Nardi, meet two people and their working worlds on-stage. They bring the depression out of privatization back into the public sphere and ask: Where is exhaustion apparent in movement? How can one deal with one's own exhaustion in an economic system in which everyone "is the architect of his own fortune"? Lange and Nardi use the common exhaustion to resist against the treadmills of the economy and search for ways in which to take the pressure off individuals.
