In the new contemporary dance piece „The Hype" the movements of the dancers seem fascinatingly unreal and foreign. It is an artistic experiment with the motoric logic of the body and a pursuit for a story which tells of time. "The Hype" starts with a picture which appeals to the audience as immediate, frail, hard and raw, however emotionally apprehensible and therefore it creates unexpected closeness. Surprisingly you feel the movements of the dancers as if they preambulated the map of our emotions and unexpectedly you find yourself in a new moment which minutes before you would not have dared to imagine.
