The Quality of Being in Colour

The Quality of Being in Colour is a multi-perspective performance-installation of two performers, two rings and the room. The rings and performers interact with each other through movement and colours. It is a dance with the room, with the walls, and over the ceiling and floor. Sharp clean shadows create an interplay between lines, with which the dancers dance. The are in a constant state of now, not forcing performative structures, but moving from the interaction with the object and its weight.
