Performance of human and object
Mind initially light, preoccupied with game play.
The perfect interplay delights the human eye.
We are blinded by the desire to preserve everything, to maintain it by the power of will. However, by clinging the weakness becomes strong and the sense becomes hard.
Clinging attracts tension.
Together they flood the mind and produce immobility.
In moments of weakness shadows come to the surface.
Those to which a busy man did not pay enough attention.
Fragile security, is it possible to return to you?
I recognize that leaning on matter I fight my own desire.
The fall is the beginning of the journey.
Perfect shape, a symbol of order and precision. Pleasing to the eye without any irregularities and deviations. Symbol of human construct that gives us a feeling of security through it’s clarity. But can we rely on that? When do the things we have created stop being our helpers? Where is the border? It is becoming more and more complicated to find a difference between the need and addiction…
Project Cube is dance creation based on interdisciplinary collaboration of four people coming from diverse backgrounds such as dance, sculpture, design, light design and music.
In a symbolic, visual and physical manner we talk about fragile borders between human needs and addiction, desire and purposefulness. We are interested in the relation between the space of human mind, emotion and physical body. We speculate about the age of technological development and its consequences for human beings that crave for control, security, and recognition.

Pay What You Can
In 2021 all events at Studio ALTA were free. In 2022 we are introducing a new pricing system – Pay What You Can – which will allow you to choose to pay for your ticket an amount you can afford.
Tickets for each event now feature a suggested amount, giving you access to performances at ALTA for a lower price. Great! If you can pay more, you will help others pay less. We don’t wish to judge nor stigmatise but create a space for mutual solidarity and make culture accessible.
The Pay What You Can system is inspired by similar systems used by Theater, Atelier 210 in Belgium, and Battersea Arts Centre in London.
