»wut« (»rage«) is a piece about shock and protest. it plunges us into a world of contradictions and deeply felt disquiet. a subtly vibrating choreographic invocation of a somewhat feverish incandescence – the embodiment of anger welling up. six dancers, musically accompanied live on stage by composer ralf r. ollertz, boost what is brewing over and under the surface, grasping one of the most human and sinister of emotions.
»wut« is a is a passionate answer to the speechlessness of contemporary society, taking a stand to resist the nebulous state of our times. a burning under the skin, boiling on the surface, breaking apart with agitation, striking a nerve and painfully resonating within the spectator.

»toula limnaios’ associative visual worlds reveal simultaneously disturbing and intense, as well as precise movement details … the striking strength of this choreographer lies in her ability to stage a scenic plurality of opposing events that culminate in a pensive final metaphor. this is what leaves its mark in the audience’s memory. over the 19 years of its existence, the cie. toula limnaios has developed into one of the most outstanding independent ensembles for contemporary dance today.« (neues deutschland/tanznetz, dr. k. schmidt-feister)
» ›wut‹ is a rapid flood of images … in spite of the fact that toula limnaios is here attacking issues that have so far been largely avoided in dance theater, the choreographer finds strong metaphorical images and a poetic composition of danced virtuosity that also transports contemporary, politically current discourse.« (www.tanzpresse.de, juliane wieland)
