DEAD BIRDSis a collaborative work by dance makers Silke Mehler and Simone Heijloo. After travelling independently to their favourite countries of warmth, they met back in Amsterdam. They shared a feeling of broken wings in a country of cold and business. With the vision to create beauty from whatever there is present in the upmost honest experience of the body and heart, the "dead birds" came to life. Learning to love the broken has served as a reference point for celebrating aliveness in its complete incompleteness.
