An ideal like only young people have them. Simple, unspoiled and fearless. Trusting each other to the bone and daring to dream big. Finding courage to resist in the midst of great danger. Whatever happens, until the guillotine.

With ROSES, choreographer Wies Merkx brings an ode to the Weisse Rose, the student resistance group against the nazi terror regime founded by siblings Hans and Sophie Scholl. In image, movement and lyrics, seven young performers sketch a group in which trust and solidarity are of vital importance.
