Stillen is about bodies that need each other. To eat, to drink, to make love and to cry. On stage, an old man, a young girl, a boy. An old woman, a young woman. Each body with its own memories. Each body searching. Stillen is about restless bodies, that tremble and shake. About relieving and nursing, about quenching thirst. Bodies bump into other bodies. They lose each other and break free. A performance about the comfort of touch. About the pain of solitude that always returns.
