Are you sure that what you see is everything there is to see?
Is the world you live in the only one?
Is there perhaps another universe that you can only reach through a secret entrance?
With “The Seventh Floor of the World” choreographers Heine Avdal and Yukiko Shinozaki and multimedia artist Sachiyo Takahashi are taking you on an imaginary journey, shifting between reality and fiction. Through various levels of abstraction and a play with scales, they guide you to unknown layers where words, shapes and colors melt in the senses. This playful exploration for passages to other levels is testing your perceptions.
