Conceived and performed by Kristine Vismane
Music: Boris Berman Root Of An Unfocus, Jay-Z featuring Alicia Keys New York
On stage Kristine presents a story she recorded during a chance meeting with a stranger and later transcribed into movement, adding music, lights and costume to reveal the creation of the choreography. The process led her to an unexpected (existential) question: What is ZEIR?

Dive (solo performance)-Video Not Available
Choreographer: Dmitrijs Gaitjukevics
Performer: Dmitrijs Gaitjukevics
Music: Ben Lukas Boysen – Hecq
This work is based on an exploration of myself. Dive – into a state close to coma. When time slows down and in a second you could do what could be done in an hour. A feeling similar to when one is in front of the “light” and has a choice to leave this world or stay in it. Body, movement, concentration and thought behavior are all explored within this piece. Dive into yourself as an attempt to move the thoughts into the background and let the body move from other impulses.
This performance was made possible, in part, by the Trust for Mutual Understanding and The Suit Case Fund of New York Live Arts.
