"Needs" - is a dance performance with live music about the human needs. These are primarily social and emotional needs that go beyond just physiological. The world consists of different people whose needs are diverse. These needs model our thinking and affect our perception of the surrounding world. Perception can be regarded as a process of knowing, which reflects the reality.How to perceive each other? What are our real, true needs? How do they differ from each other? What are my needs? "Needs" offers a safe environment for a reflection on the needs and the perception of our differences and similarities. It is a personalized shared social space which provides an opportunity for meetings and mutual empathy.
