Invisible Dancing uses wild imagination as the starting point for dance and performance. The work expands into a collective space of imagination that also embraces not-knowing.

About the performance

Invisible Dancing transforms the dance performance into a site of divergent thinking and being. During the performance, the performers imagine themselves to be invisible. This allows them to follow the body’s preferences and logic. The work takes place at the extreme limits of perception, in the depth of darkness. 

However, invisibility is always relative to the gaze of others. Invisible Dancing creates a sense of community in a space where the audience can free themselves from everyday demands by imagining the performance to be a parallel reality.
