Riders on The Storm is vol. 2 out of two pieces, which deals with our relationship to time and destinations.
In Vol. 1, Desert-Dessert, Ida stages two performers. Riders On the Storm on the other hand is a big piece with 28 female dancers. They move controlled in a forward direction with Alan Watt’s philosophical words in the background. The research was to play with the aspects of motion in an abstract direction vs. motion with a direct target and direction. Eg. the movement of the hat in the waves that the visuals shows.
