A game, a dance, an enchanting party
A contagious dance, an irresistible beat, a game which re-enchants the city. Groupenfunction celebrates the community. And life. Meanwhile they throw a party, and you are invited.
Eight young people gather at dusk one evening, they want to challenge life and reject reality. The place is an abandoned site at the edge of town, wedged between grafittied walls and building debris and with a stunning view across the harbour. Their staged dance floor is fenced in and illuminated – a playground for adults. When night falls, they meet here to dance, sing, dream. To find something greater than themselves. A glimpse of another reality.
Groupenfunction possesses an infectious energy and the ability to add life and pulse into places and people. They tease you with your unspoken wishes and desires, all without words, and create a seductive performance which celebrates cohesion and life.
