The starting point of this work is the consideration of how static the material metal can be, or how flexible clay can be. This question of mobility is linked to the dancer’s body.

Breaking out of the sculptural frame, the dance begins, which draws new inspiration from every contact with the soft and hard elements of the sculpture, but at the same time becomes an independent artistic work.

A dialogue between dance and sculpture is sought. The traces and imprints that arise during the dance become important because they document moments of this action. They are collected, burned and re-inserted into the sculpture. Thus the sculpture is completed. Within the framework of the cooperation, the artistic genres modify themselves by daring to try to profit from the other. Sculpture longs to become a bit more mobile, whereas dance strives to leave something static and permanent behind.

Raffael Seyfried creates the musical framework for the performance in his programmed live installation.
