WHY WE FIGHT?
Is anger a fundamental part of humanity? Alain Platel and his dancers explore our relationship with violence. From Mahler’s music, via early film images of the continent shaken by the horrors of the first world war, to the ensemble’s memories of their own experiences of war and violence. A highly intense and emotive film. Silvia Bauer
