ELFENBEINHAUT was originally created for MOTUS, an evening of ten short pieces made by the dancers of Tanzcompagnie Oldenburg and closely connected to living in the city of Oldenburg. What moves that city, who moves it and in what way does movement play a vital role in our lives were questions that served as a base for those ten miniatures. ELFENBEINHAUT brings the audience into a world in between where four men linger about and long for the unknown.

Now, which is not yesterday and not tomorrow…in this space, which is nothing but a mirror…here, where everything is about us. I leave and you will wear my dress, my pearls and my duty.
