The Passion of Andrea 2 is the new creation for three dancers by Luxembourgish choreographer Simone Mousset, winner of the Lëtzebuerger Danzpräis 2017.

It is like trying to hold soap when it’s wet. It is the solution that constantly escapes us. It is magic trick, deadly game, dance performance, farce, debate, musical, sci-fi monologue, all in one. Masquerading as a sequel to an earlier, non-existent version of itself, The Passion of Andrea 2 is a mischievous con artist of a dance piece about feelings of uneasiness, the inability to fully understand, and the painful desire for more. In a whirlwind of tours de force as skillful as frivolous, three figures in curly wigs are propelled through odd loops of burlesque scenes and increasingly disconcerting worlds of impossibilities.
