Nothing Sad is a dance game loosely inspired by J. Kepler´s essay ‘On the Six-Cornered Snowflake – a Catchy Reading about Nothing’. And by playing with energy, physicality and organisation…

Physical laws and chemistry determine our world, just like our history and memory determine us. Energy will raise the pulse of both dance and imagination. Motion, dance and body are perceived in the present moment – they are here and suddenly they are not, disappearing for good. Or were they here at all? Three bodies in space, their sudden arrangement and the ceaseless changes of matter and shape release the memories, emotions and images. How much life can we squeeze into a single frozen moment?
