Shifts and changes everywhere. Walls are collapsing, values shifting, understandings and behaviors reappraising. Borders between countries are questioned, new weapons and inner endurance tested. Everyone competes with everybody for a better world and total separation increases. It´s all filled with humanization of violence, news and information that claims to be true….

How do we feel being at the center of the growing showcase of this manipulative aggression? How to adapt to this continuous flow of “new normality”? What really happens to our mind and body when they become a battleground for militarization of politics?

„It didn't just touch, it shook, both spiritually and physically. In these difficult times, we are especially sensitive, and then it is good if art shakes, because in the continued distancing lies the danger of becoming insensitive.“ (Aare Rander „Koroonakapsastest kultiveeritud kunst. Muljeid Fine 5 tantsulavastusest „FN”, TMK/2, 2021)

"Just like today's world of fake news, the performance raised many questions. What kind of military parade music was it? Were the performers more likely to support each other and contribute to finding inner peace, or did they tease each other instead? How important is being close to your neighbor during difficult periods of life? The emergence of questions and thought-provoking moments are always welcome when it comes to art." (Ilona Vapper, "Tants – murekoorma eemaldaja", Postimees, 2.06 2021)
