La Dolce Vita

La Dolce Vita

A dance performance inspired by stories of people experiencing homelessness.


Partying till midnight, sleeping till noon, lying around in the park under a clear blue sky and making love by the flickering light of a campfire. Ain’t life sweet!

Come sit awhile, friend, throw us a fiver and listen to our unbelievable stories. We’ve got fragments of slapstick, shards of tragedy, shreds of lives without a past nor a future. Do you know who I was? Do you know where we could be? And where we will be, after we get it going, faster and faster until it flashes before your eyes. It will be great, it will be the best, until finally – razzmatazz!

DEKKADANCERS presents a dance show inspired by stories of people experiencing homelessness. An indomitable band of homeless people go head to head with a severe winter season. They join forces and strive to survive. Can they fish out reason from the sea of alcohol? Can they purchase redemption with empty pockets? And as the winter grows harsher, will they convince us as well as themselves in time, that they are people, just like others, with a fate that can meet anyone, with lives that are worth saving?
