The artists translate emotions from the public, transform them, and present them, as if to send these emotions back in a dancing envelope. One One One establishes a specific relation to the public, unlike regular stage performances. The choreographers take over the public space as a field for experimentation and nonrepresentation. The performers engage physically and mentally in destabilizing a certain idea of reality, giving them an opportunity to explore their limits and their relationship with transgression.
