how to get water into the tire 

The performance display multiple meanings, put against a none dramatized aesthetics. The subject of control is addressed as an inescapable problematic when working with dislocated artistic tools in other cultures and communities. The totalitarian regime of perception crucially increases during the performance, until control is released from the performer to the receiver in the final dance sequences, where the audience own perception is encouraged as translator.

Sara dances 20 movement phrases given to her by 20 artists from different countries, as their interpretation of 5 photographs they received from her. The images are also from another project and reality. A second level of translation is yuxtaposed by the 20 light proposals given by 20 light designers from Stockholm to each of those movement phrases. The work is a passage from medias, from the reality, to the images, to the movements, to the light.
