Rabih Mroué's new work You should have seen me dancing Waltz confronts the dancers Anna Herrmann, Emma Lewis, Marco Volta and Christine Kono with the news of our daily violence, natural disasters and politics. How do current events affect – and infect – the dancers’ bodies? What is their impact on a physical level? Do they change how we move? These questions will be negotiated in very personal ways, dealing with the impact of words describing their movements.
