Unity, duality, trinity, eternity, balance, division, completeness, repetition; the abstract world of numbers translated into ideas. ‘Intersection’ draws inspiration from the symbolic use of numbers in faith, mythology and philosophy and brings original dance and music into sacred spaces. A study of form and emotion, the work brings together architecture, movement, sound and light and creates a unique world where an enchanting web of untold dance stories come to life.
An ever evolving show, each performance space is the work’s missing piece. The ensemble spend a day to adapt choreography and lighting to its architecture, embrace its history and remould the dance on site, resulting in a unique performance for every site.
