        • What is it?: Dúnn is a dance piece, performance, exhibition, musical feist, theatre and a lightning to your mind. Our topic is very close to us since, this time, we decided to deal with human existence and the sun. These two things are closely related. Once we began to look at existence, we had to attend to the sun as well. We gave existentialism six days of our lives, on the seventh day we rested. For those six days the philosophy consumed our minds wholly. Then we began abusing it. The sun was given twenty minutes but we also sort of knew what it’s about. When you deal with such large topics you must make a very good connection to them. We had to make sure to be perfectly present in this open wound – Planet Earth – and to stare at the sun all day. We hope you’ll be able to make the connection. That’s what it’s all about.
