Falling down and getting up again – a recurring cycle

In their latest work MIRA looks for the causes that make us get up and what it physically means to get ourselves to carry out this act.  Are we being made to get up or is it an inner force that sets us in motion? What obstacles are there in the moment of getting up? A sensitive act of balance dancers confront themselves with over and over again. For how long does the getting up- figure resist the influencing energies?
The suspense build ups of this work link to the dynamic of the movement that subjects to the never-ending and ever changing getting up and falling down-cycle. To lie down at a certain point, to sit, to remain there – when, how and with which motivation and from which force does the human being rise again?
