Inspired by Paul Auster’s seminal novel, The New York Trilogy, this promenade performance invites the audience into a unique dance experience set within a paper labyrinth.
Dance, architecture, film and specially commissioned music meet to create a world of illusion, mystery and shadow play, where nothing is as it seems.
Touching on popular themes of detective novels and modern issues of ever-present surveillance, the audience becomes involved in the performance, influencing the transformation of their surroundings.
Dancers: Patricia Okenwa, Joe Walkling & Renaud Wiser. Photography: Ignius Pupinis
