In his new creation Máté Mészáros continues his research on the body as a dynamic object. The details are once hidden, then revealed by the lights manoeuvred by the four moving bodies in the theatre space of Trafó. Dancers, lit from below and then from the sides create open-ended, timeless situations and the possibility for the spectator to patch these details together into a whole.

The complex choreography often comprised of small movements, the moving torsos, the skin, the details illuminated by light invite the viewers to observe, to contemplate, to immerse. As if time had stopped for a moment, as if we had entered an exhibition space in which the mode and duration of our contemplation is up to us.

The film adaptation of the production was online presented at Trafó In May 2021.
