“every single day” is a piece for 7 dancers, inspired by Albert Camus’s Myth of Sisyphus. Absurdity is the conflict between the human desire for meaning or rather meaningful action and the senselessness of the world. Camus reinterpreted the myth – he described a human being, laden with heavy responsibility, who is nevertheless able to find meaning and even happiness in the permanent monotony of his everyday existence.

“every single day” is a poetic deliberation on the consistenty growing suspicion of the absurd. It drives everyday situation to the limits of the sur-real and allows deeply human traits to emerge. Toula Limnaios creates shifting images in constant motion resembling the cycle of life. Sisyphus symbolizes the daily challenge to do something “impossible”.
