Ann-Kathrin Adam and Lucie Horna, both dancers at the Graz Opera, use a choreography specially developed for the HALLE FÜR KUNST to tie in with the dynamics towards the architecture. Through the physical movements, new connections are created that allow art and space, as well as people and architecture, to appear in a different way once again. How can we perceive art more intuitively? What role does the body play in this? And what are the relationships between visual art and dance?
