“The lock screen on my son's phone is a pink unicorn. When I was a teenager, I stayed far away from anything that was pink. I had never heard of unicorns before and cell phones didn’t exist.” In “Pink Unicorns”, the Cuban-born dancer Alexis Fernández is on stage alongside his son. Experience encounters youthful exuberance. Assumed serenity is questioned with curiosity. The collaborative work of the artist collective La Macana (Caterina Varela and Alexis Fernández) with the choreographer Samir Akika, resident choreographer at Theater Bremen, deals with the not always uncomplicated relationship between the generations. The impulse of both father and son to share the stage holds a mirror up to the audience: fathers, mothers, sons, daughters. “Pink Unicorns” is wild dance theater in which two bodies encounter each another.
