Ernestyna Orlowska & Tanja Turpeinen

Wishing Well is a choreographed piece about the comical side of melancholia and Justin Bieber‘s Philosophy: Follow your dreams and don‘t let anybody stop you. Tanja and Ernestyna created two characters that remind the viewer of something between a fairy and a depressed plastic surgeon and they let them explore, what the comical side of melancholia could possibly be. Does that tension-promising concept of melancholia that is comical even exist? They explore together topics like healthy nutrition, friendship and the possibility of a real wishing well. Now all their dreams could come true, but how to know what they should wish for?
