Plaza is an imaginary public square where different groups of people hang out. In various ways, encounters between the groups happen, partly based on disagreement, mistrust and ignorance but also out of curiosity and care. The piece deals with differences and established categorizations and seeks for ways to disrupt them. Stereotypes are exposed, deconstructed and interwoven with one another in an attempt to make nuances visible. This entanglement creates new social constellations that lead to explorations of togetherness and ultimately unity. Plaza is a collage of diverse styles and realities that choreographically explores identity, belonging and the co-existing with people different to us.
