When Murcof presented his new project to me, the result of a collaboration with the Alias Dance Company, he showed me the performance where dancers were falling and rising, again and again.
I was mesmerized by this kind of strange and hypnotic choreography, and I immediately thought about how hard the performance would have been for the dancers – disorientating, seeing the seats of the theatre, rising and falling as they are performing. The point of view of the dancers became the main concept, and we thought we could make a small theatre to imitate this movement.
