Dance was a game before it became art. Playing games means: experiencing situations that are not allowed in normal life. Playing games also means: creating and destroying things at the same time, playing with risks. Playing games builds and transcends boundaries.

The choreographer Joshua Monten shows that our favourite games are often those that have consequences and risks. Games that are more than just fun. Games that make your head spin and can break your heart.
