Inspired by Vasiliy Kandinsky’s Point and Line to Plane, the artists explore the relationship between movement and drawing and use their bodies to create a work of visual art. If we picture a person as a point on a surface, and their relations with others as lines, human connections start forming geometric patterns.
For this work to become possible, young artists who took part in the Ya-Yunost Festival attended a series of classes in movement and contemporary dance. In the meantime, another group taking part in the performance—the dancers of FreeDanceLab—were given lectures on composition and color. As the range of visual tools available to participants expanded, the Dream became reality.
