ROTES VELO celebrated their 5th anniversary with a big party.
Everybody was a guest no matter if spectator or performer. Everybody was invited to sit down at the table and so it became the stage and the stranger became a guest.
The physical dance theatre performance integrates 18 performers of different age and professions.
ALLES GUETI communicates to all the senses. It is a feast you can see, hear, feel, smell and taste. A performance that makes the audience forget who is amateur or who is professional or how old you are. It will take you to a universe that is only characterized by humanity.
