5 Men dancing arose from an original idea by Thomas Mettler in 2004 (Bern).  Jordi Cortés Molina, Rick Nodine, Christos Strinopoulos, Christian Panouillot and Adam Benjamin, created dance out of the synergy of events, ideas, accidents and occurrences with a fierce commitment to pure improvisation without script or structure.

"5 Men, playfull, keen, unpredictable, poignant, surprising, funny, mean and bittersweat were literally tearing the dance floor apart."
