ABOUT THE PIECE:
DOT AND LINE is a contemporary circus piece in a playful search of the dynamic point.
Referring to the graphic dogma of Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky „A line is a dot on a walk“ the artist Sebastian Berger is examining how this two fellows dot and line are behaving in space. Using manly object manipulation this piece transforms a fine art theory based on 2dimensional into depicting art moving in 3dimensional space.
DOT AND LINE is on the shortlist of circusnext featured productions 2020/21.

„The high level of performance, the tension of body and mind are so dense and compelling that the room falls breathtakingly silent (…) an aesthetically impressive choreography.“
