A personal search to which steps were crucial for the way new hiphop maker Donna Chittick leads her life.
In Together, four dancers show us the women of today; confident, tough and fragile at the same time, and together. Donna Chittick drew inspiration for this not only from her own life, but also from the everyday life of the self-employed woman and the life choices that come her way. Who influences you on your life path? What role does your living environment play? In a contemporary mix of urban dance styles, Chittick searches for the female strength in those dance styles, and makes a performance in which the daily reality of her and her dancers is the source.
"As a choreographer, I like to delve deeper into the motives of man and I want to tell a story that touches the daily reality of man."
"Donna manages in Together to capture modern youthful femininity and sisterhood"
