With seven extraordinary international dancers, Story, story, die, looks at the context betweeen lies and love: What we'll do to be appreciated.

The narcissism of todays "Me" generation is clear as the daylight.
We constantly arrange our everyday to appear the best for others. We're willing to lie about ourselfs, and stage the perfect lives. Both in real life and on social media.

But his happiness is fleeting, and your slf-realization manifests as someone elses recognition. At the end we're neither happy or unhappy, content but not content. This modern love is not unconditional. It relies on success, and the digital interest and respons is soon enough gone ...

“A radiant piece of performing art... Story, story, die aims at the heart and hits.

The performance is a masterly compilation of words, music, hyper-detailed choreography in a form that oscillates between the absolute concrete and totally abstract.”

It’s marvelous. And fantastic.”
