A Resource for Performing Artists, Scholars and Audiences.
Inspired by abstract visual artists, notably Wassily Kandinsky, Alexander Calder and Otto Piene, Everything Starts from a Dot is an abstract journey of a humble dot presented through Microscopic Live Cinema-Theatre, combining video projection and the presence of moving objects on stage. The story unfolds solely with abstract characters — shapes, lines, color, light/shadow and sound. An inhabitant of two dimensions, the dot escapes from its familiar environment. Through various encounters and metamorphoses, the dot explores microscopic yet cosmic territories in itself and beyond. The performance is accompanied with Electro-acoustic soundtrack, without spoken words.
