*A look beyond the Mediterranean

Simon Mayer, a performer, dancer, choreographer and musician, is one of the biggest names in the Austrian performance scene, who’s body of work is characterised by experimentation with songs, music and traditional dance. At Fira we are going to see SunBengSitting a piece which covers everything from the yodel (a traditional Alpine singing style) to popular and contemporary dance. It comprises a journey back in time, and a playful and humorous search for one’s identity.
