In HighWay a single figure, a lost tourist, a mountaineer is exposed in an empty museum searching for grip. The ropes that connect the body to the surrounding architecture provide both support and restriction. The body, becoming and colliding with the space, is shifting between states of power and surrender, effort and rest, volume and flatness. The dancer is arranging different objects, a mix of body-parts, abstract forms and baroque architectural fragments to temporary still-lifes and might become himself one of these still-lifes. The spectators have to position themselves constantly in order to handle the shifting space and thereby the audience becomes material itself. While architecture, interior and frames are pulled out of their comfort zone, body-parts and sounds occasionally multiply and emancipate into the shifting space.
