Dance in the 3rd dimension

Within an alternative, newly invented dance space, in which any surfaces are missing, a new dance language is created, then a stage play. In this dance space, the dancers can move and support themselves exclusively with the help of a three-dimensional pole scaffold specially designed for this purpose.
Never before has the basic system of human locomotion been thematized in this way by such a three-dimensional framework: questioned, changed, alienated.
