Story Layout

What do we really look like? How do we perceive ourselves? How do the others see us?
Every imprint of ourselves, adds a piece of information, a tone in time that brings us closer to ourselves.

Not only a dance theater performance.

Photographers and dancers, disabled or not, meet on stage searching for their identity, using the visual and sensual conception of their body as a starting point.
The pictures of their own bodies imprint a selected version of themselves and are perceived both as a threat as well as a gift. Gradually the windows framing the hidden part of reality open to reveal what is inside.

Music and sounds of an altered language and conventional speech surround the performance. Old fashioned screens and projected images of the participants  function as a set design, creating an atmosphere where the past is confused with the present and the future.
