In the frame of Open Spaces#1-2016
Bitterness results from an obsessive level of introspection. It is an emotional state of long-term regret that ferments into destructive emotions. It is a burden and a weight one consciously fixates on. While sharing a glass of dry martini, the choreographers Ellinor Ljungkvist and Andrew Wass investigate this fixation. They discuss the different perspectives on bitterness in American and Swedish cultures, reveal sad memories and analyze the habit of returning to them time and time again.
