‘Into a mirror’ is a cross-genre performance that combines poetry, text, and song with dance. Through an interplay of music, movement, text, and poetry, two dancers traverse a musical landscape alongside a singer and two musicians. With a commitment to taking young people seriously, the performance is rooted in a selection of their thoughts and texts generated from conversations, a writing workshop, and an anonymous survey. The performance’s theme revolves around young people’s reflections on themselves, others, and their surroundings. Recognizing the significance of granting visibility and voice to young individuals, the concert incorporates their thoughts, opinions, and experiences, making them integral to the performance.
