 A(ttention) Deficit Delight 

In an era saturated with 'smart technologies', where stimuli abound and attention is perpetually sought, this performance serves as a reflection of our times. Drawing inspiration from the ADHD mind, it is a voyage into heightened sensory awareness, offering a nuanced perspective on our technologically dense reality. The dance captures an intense physical and emotional journey. Within the confines of a shimmering 10x10x5m cube, eight dancers pulsate with the restless energy and hypersensitivity emblematic of sensory overload. Their distinct, mostly solo, movements oscillate between sharp attention shifts and overwhelming sensory deluges, painting a vivid tableau of the ADHD experience. Accompanied by an eclectic soundscape, ranging from sporadic shouts to a medley of pop, rock, techno, and original compositions, and punctuated by vibrant attire, personal makeup, and flashing lights, the performance beckons audiences to immerse themselves in a realm where sound, movement, and emotion converge. It's not just a dance; it's an exploration of sensation, perception, and the cultural demands of our attention-saturated world.
