“Elevator” follows the human pursuit of intimacy, love, being accepted by society, trust and freedom of expression. The dance piece is telling the story of immigration. We all experience “immigration” internally and externally. Exploring the questions of getting closer to people and the possibility / impossibility of intimacy, cultural and language barriers, the feeling of starting from scratch, situations when all your previous achievements and merits do not mean anything and when you need to change your habits. This city teaches you to accept everyone and everything, this city loves you, but checks on you at every step, there are a lot of people here and there is loneliness.
