Giulia Adagazza: What inspires you?
Mara Peyer: The pleasure and joy of dancing, but also the curiosity about my physical limits: What can I do with my body and what can I tell through movements?

Which recent choreography inspired you?
The ballet “Emergence” by Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite. The movements are inspired by the behaviour of bees. I found the dynamics and movement quality of the dancers absolutely thrilling.
