 A voyage through space and time is marked by the rejection of literature, senses and emotions. The body becomes a fulfilling form and a driving power. Alongside with ringing dissonances of music and mechanical sound, bodies are exposed to a transforming circle from a human being into a brute or an inanimate object. They evade clearly defined contours. However, at the same time the beauty of the deformed bodies is made prominent.

This project is supported by Lithuanian Dance Information Centre.

 

Great clarity and visual side is treated with most exquisite taste. Between the dancers and the audience a special bond is made, which introduces extraordinary emotional tension.
