In January 2003 – in connection with Dansolution 2 – the winners at Dansescenen – Mute Comp. Physical Theatre presents the performance IF WISHES WERE KISSES – a poetic physical performance about an elderly man who returns to a deserted hotel that brings back memories.
"If Wishes Were Kisses" is a tribute to the American born dancer and choreographer Ralph Grant who, for many years, danced in all the great companies in both the USA and Europe. For a longer period of time, he taught and choreographed in Denmark.
"If wishes were kisses" is based on his time with Pina Bausch – one of the pioneers within the dance theatre and the genre Austrucktanz.
