Dear audiences,
It was very unfortunate that we could not perform last Saturday or Sunday due to the rain and the cold,
and thank you to all of you who came to the gallery under the rain…
This piece is in effect not only site-specific but weather-specific…in the effort to adapt ourselves to the laws of Nature and to follow the predilection of the weather report,
We will perform M E L T –
this THURSDAY the 26th and this SUNDAY the 29th. Between 7 pm and 9 pm every half hour.
*Only if it does not rain at least one hour before the show will we perform on SATURDAY the 28th as well.
The Thursday show should offer the best weather conditions for the performance and we hope that you can make it then.
thank you for your commitment and flexibility
looking forward to seeing you…and to perform this exciting piece.
*For more info read below and refer to the article in the dance section of Time Out.
