Uncomfort Zone

What is dance? What is beauty? ‘Uncomfort Zone’ explored the key aspects of Mehmet Sander‘s renowned ‘Manifesto on Dance’: dance is a premise to refuse comfort, emotion and music, in favour of collision, maximum velocity and gravity as enhancements of – rather than inhibitions to – performance.

‘Atma’ photoshoot

This photoshoot was done by Bertil Nilsson at the Circus Space, London, straight after the presentation of our solo pieces in May 2010.
