Signals and messages are pouring in. From a ladybug, a reindeer girl, from a volcano and a snail brother in a lonely shell. All of them need help. And there’s a strange signal from far, far away. Is it a star that’s transmitting? A new working day has just begun for the Signalists, department 415.
Often, we understand each other straight away. But sometimes there’s trouble, entanglements, disconnections, loneliness. That’s when the Signalists step in, they’re experts in communication, with the help of their amazing machine.
The Signalists is an audio-adventure and dance-theatre piece that speaks to the whole body. About the will to be understood, seen and loved.
The Signalists was created through a collaborative process between the creative team and ensemble, and was inspired by their meetings and workshops with the pupils of the Sandeklev School in Gothenburg.
