No performing arts can better implement the concept of longing than dance. The dancer stretches and stretches, but always reaches into space. His movement often remains an enthusiastic search. Like the blue flower of romance.
With longing, Jean-Guillaume Weis tries to make the incomprehensible tangible, what drives us, what we strive for. This longing can be desire: for cohesion, belonging, understanding, but also for love. Sometimes there is a kind of fulfillment at the end or just this wonderful feeling that you “are”. “Le sentiment de l'existence”, which Jean-Jacques Rousseau describes in his Rêveries.
