| Synopsis

The power of images. Fake or reality? In split seconds, the human brain decides which images it “believes in”, which images are aesthetically “beautiful”, appealing, and which area such as “news”, “dance” or “art”, they are assigned to. Aspects of what is proven by way of documentary, journalism, of what is manipulating, of what is everyday reality, of what depicts art and artificially created environments need to be questioned. too many heroes situates imagined sequences in a clearly defined space of action, investigates impulses and reflexes and depicts agitated situations in a dynamic experimental dance arrangement in viral images that simulate one of the possible realities.

The dance film production, too many heroes, by Andrea K. Schlehwein + NETZWERK AKS was triggered by the need to draw attention to the ongoing injustice in Myanmar where the constant violation of human rights by the junta has become a sad reality since the military seized power on Feb. 1, 2021. too many heroes does not aim to picture a specific reality, but rather to mirror escalating conflicts or riots which can be seen in many places nowadays. The starting point of this project is a reflection on incalculable socio-political situations, the crisis of worldviews and the impossibility of distinguishing fact from fiction.
