Continuum is a work about the impossibility of meeting in the contemporary society. This project was born from the idea of Liquid Modernity and the constant state of fluidity in the contemporary life. In the piece three performers find themselves in a situation of constant trying and failing, which generates a serie of impossible meetings. A meeting that never happens was the axial for the development of the performance.

„… eine tänzerische Skizze, so berührend wie ein im KZ abgelegter Blumenstrauß.“
von Sabine Leucht /14. Juli 2015
„Continuum was probably the most interesting, choreographically , of the evening, involving three people caught in a state of uncertainty and unpredictability as the moved, running about the stage barely making contact before picking up the tempo and eventually coming together in an embrace and handshake. The movement was quite naive and undemanding, but there was a sense of urgency and paranoia to it which simply strengthened the choreographer’s impression of modern-day mans conflict with daily life and its struggles.“
