An individual has 24 chromosomes, although some people have one more. This little extra bonus can bring about a lot of changes. "La Gaia Scienza" brings some light into the darkness and shows how beautiful it can be to enter into a tender relationship with one's genetic make-up, once it has been made tangible, transformed into a more vivid dimension. Surrounded by macroscopic chromosomes, two unequal, yet identical people approach each other and explore their surroundings, their counterparts and themselves, accompanied by electronic music.


Performers Laura Yurtöven, Leonie Yurtöven, Georg Joachim Schmitt
