'Great Square has no corners" - Lao Zi


In the empty space of a square a dancer is revealed through gravity, grace and restraint. While automatic psycho-physical impulses arise from inhabited areas of self, resisting them evokes new kind of drives. We are interested in those drives, which are atonal, unknown, unbridled, exposing blockages, fears and abjection. Appropriated in a situation of 'nowhere to hide' by a touch of graceful compassion, they become lines of poetry addressed to no one from no one.
