What water was


Water as the secret of life.

Flowing into every cell of our body.

The memory of jumping into the water.

Mathematics as smooth accuracy.

A joy that can not be stopped.

Liquid pulse.

Attempts to stop time.

What was, is not.

Water to water.

A participatory dance performance exploring the relationship between water and mathematics.

An attempt to transfer a rigid mathematical representation to an organically moving mass of bodies. Where do they merge and where do they collide with each other?

Mathematics as multidimensional data projections and graph theory. Water as a recollection of the living body in immersion, drifting and sinking.

The performance was created as part of MA Choreography at HZT Berlin.
