Chemistry: “sparks” between people, in relationships. Where exactly does this “chemistry” come from? What can it lead us to? Can we control its influence on our lives?
A tale told through movement, gesture and dance, wrapped in music — this is a story that questions our (ir)rationality.
“An exploration through dance and physical theatre of the less tangible chemical reactions that govern human relationships“ Entertainment.ie

We know that there is something in the air. But what is this ‘something’? Perhaps these things are hard to explain rationally because they relate to our feelings, instincts, emotions and senses. “Chemistry”- sparks between people, capable of forming relationships and destroying them. Where exactly does this chemistry come from? Where does it lead us to? And can we control its influence on our lives? A tale told through movement, gesture and dance, wrapped in music – this is a story that questions our (ir)rationality.
ABSOLUT Fringe 2012 runs citywide from September 8 — 23, 2012

Last Friday during our rehearsal for the new performance “Seekers” we were joined by two great photographers who were kind enough to take some promo images. The results of their work can be viewed in our ‘Photo Gallery’ section of the website. It’s absolutely amazing to see what a professional photographer can do by just applying his skills to what he does with passion!
We would like to say BIG THANK YOU to Tom Olejnik (http://www.fotolejnik.com/) and Szymon Lazewski (http://www.fotofarm.ie/) for their time and help. Without people like you it would be impossible to make this something special for all of us.
