Combine Juanjo Arques’s groundbreaking choreography, architect Marc Koehler’s fascination with how people move through spaces, and Sticky’s technical and creative imagination. What did we make?

Premiering at a festival of innovative new work at Stadsschouwburg of Amsterdam, “…the applied science sparked off the dance, inspiring some of the most exciting choreography,” according to Dance Europe magazine, which praised the “mix of aesthetic beauty and edgy confrontation” for “achieving a dynamic balance between the technology and the dance.”
