»tell me a better story 1« is the first part of a series of solo/ duet pieces that were developed for the ensemble during the period of isolation and pandemic. faced with uncertainty and desperation, looking at an inexistent future, we experienced each day anew. we gave each other this »valuable time«, and surrendered to a development process that grabbed us unexpectedly, and simply took us away. enriching like a blessing, in retrospect.

the charisma of every dancer and their personality has always been characteristic of our work. their individual strengths will be unveiled in six solos and a duet, reflecting the personalities of our ensemble, whose character and aura are always present on the stage, and imprint the work of the cie. toula limnaios.

This is a play about war. From what is happening now. About how the war started. What happens to people who are separated by war. This is documentary evidence in letters that friends currently in Ukraine and Russia send to each other every day. The author of the idea is the actor and director Julia Aug. The basic text is her correspondence with friends in bomb shelters in different cities of Ukraine. It is not just a theatrical production, but a living chronicle of what is happening right now, in our time, around us and in our lives.
