A performance in which the female, danced by Line Tørmoen, appears as a strong, active and yet somewhat distanced figure. Three other dancers accompany her on stage: Cecilie Lindeman Steen, Kristianne Mo and Daniel Proietto.
They are all excellent dancers and create an energy on stage that has become part of the trademark of Zero Visibility Corp. The performance presents a world of abstract encounters in very physically concrete movements – this is perhaps an artistic signature of Ina Christel Johannessen’s recent productions. At the centre we do not find emotions or intellectual associations but the body, caught up in a language of dreams, desires, stories and memories.
Three objects in particular catch our attention during the performance: a bright red coat, a sharp-edged spinning top, and an owl. The colours of the costumes are contrasted mainly in black, white and red. So simple and yet so complex. These strange objects interact with the vibrant bodies of the dancers, signalling a web of death, blood, life and wisdom. One of the highlights of the performance is when Line Tørmoen dances around and close to the sharp, spinning top. It takes the utmost precision to perform this dangerous part.

”A brilliant nightmare”
"(But) that night…” is an extremely fascinating piece of dance theatre."
"Music, set, light and costumes complement each other splendidly."
"...perfect dancers with strong expressive personalities..."
"An evening with response, the public gives an overwhelming applause."
