»Never judge a man until you’ve walked two moons in his shoes.« (Indian saying)
In »Ella«, the dancer asks the audience to take off their shoes and to bring them to the stage. In the course of the performance, she slips into the various pairs, thereby assuming the personality of it´s owner, and dancing the story that these shoes tell. On occasions, contact to the owner becomes unavoidable – at times the shoes remain silent. Sometimes they rebell, other times, they succumb to their fate. The stranger´s shoes permit the dancer to feel a story, which she never lived. They become the protagonists of an evening, and, in the end, the spectator leaves, seeing the every day object shoe in a different light.
