TERRA INCOGNITA

It's time to go. Some believe me. Others are clinging to the grass as though it loves them back. Humans travel. They voyage. They change. What is life without motion? It is motion that makes stories. It's action that makes myths.

Besides, humans are not a blessing on the earth. They cannot heal what they've done. There have always been times to leave and start again. And now is that time.

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK

A catalyst of change, soaring brilliantly

Andreas' character embodies the spirit of adventure, chasing the new and undiscovered and pulling other with him. This openness and drive is a natural quality of Andreas' dancing.

Over the next year, each of the Wild Space dancers will bring their own version of Terra Incognita to their home cities. They will adapt the work for a unique space in their city and collaborate with local artists to bring the performance to life so that our ballet will be reinterpreted and recontextualized by four different cities.
