It is sport and it is dance.
It is a space and it is a bend. It is jumping and landing
it is falling and getting up again

“Matta Matta” is a performance about safety and risk. Three lose themselves in an adventurous space of gymnastics mats that fit like pieces of a puzzle. This piece was developed specifically for sports halls at schools and toured very successfully through Denmark and Sweden. It can now be seen in the rest of Europe in its longer version and with a new cast.

The Dutch company The100Hands is run by Mojra Vogelnik Škerlj and Jasper Džuki Jelen and is present at THINK BIG! for the second time. Based on dance, architecture, and psychology, it creates physical, interactive performances that always focus on connections: Connection to yourself, to others, and to the environment. The body is seen as a compass that clearly indicates the direction in an encounter between people, as long as you know how to read the signs.
