A contemporary site-specific dance ritual
This site-specific performance takes its inspiration from the ancient Sufi dance practiced ritualistically in circular movements, a physically meditative action, in which a state of trance can be reached.
An audiovisual odyssey will emerge through the intercommunication of the 18 dancers with the light installation and sound composition. A zone where bodies merge and transform into collective awareness.
