Through care of our bodies and our environment we develop a self that is safe to meet the challenges of being in the world. Sensation becomes form through connecting the ground with the open sky, the inside with the outside, making the magic visible through our shapes and movements in relation to one another and the spaces we inhabit. Holding each other and holding space for each other, caring to bring the best out of everyone, as we meet we will confront, converse, influence and support each other. Not on the lowest common denominator, but in the yet unknown possibilities that this ensemble holds for the future.

The foundation for this research is laid out by fierce and magical women and queer men in dance-history for us to grow into unknown shapes and stories, individuals that are not afraid of their differences and willing to risk to share themselves physically in the dance.

"What I am interested in in the moment is to generate a complexity in every dancer-body and in the ensemble which is not prescribed but emerges in the moment. We will work 'closer to the centre of the body', 'closer to the joints’, develop movement from sensation and perception of the environment. Wide-ranging possibilities for the future emerge and if there’s strong physical intensity, state, shock, violence or sexiness appearing I would not rule that out, but it is not the goal of my work." – Peter Pleyer
