Performance synopsis

The ‘Zugwang’ choreographic project is an experiment exploring the types of new relationships between abstract form and movement, where movement is a need in itself and the ultimate goal. By creating their own space scores, the performers create independent worlds, thus creating a movement environment consisting of microchoreography, paying attention to what is happening between them. The materialised idea creates a choreography of viewer mindfulness.
