ABOUT THE PIECE:

DOT AND LINE (20 min) is a contemporary circus piece in a playful search of the dynamic point.

Referring to the graphic dogma of P. Klee and W. Kandinsky „A line is a dot on a walk“ the artist is examining how these two fellows dot and line are behaving in space. Using mainly object manipulation this piece transforms a fine art theory based on 2D, into depicting art moving in 3D space. The unique object manipulation, was developed the last 13 years by the artist Sebastian Berger himself. 

The piece is on the shortlist (DE, AT, CH) of circusnext featured productions 20/21.

„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.“
