“…in the sand a woman can not continue

   In the sand

                     a woman falls asleep.”

From the poem “Picking fruit” by Miriam Oren

Dune is a solo Butoh piece about the feeling of loneliness and isolation, the feeling of being unappreciated and neglected, trapped in a loveless relationship

Dune was first presented as a work in progress in 2005 at Dansolution choreographic competition, Copenhagen Denmark. In 2007 the full version premiered at Here and Now festival in Aarhus Denmark.
