Orange Puls will be performed at an old factory that in the last 100 years has transformed from an industrial production site to an entertainment center. The performance is inspired by the original use and history of the building.

In the performance the physical space is transformed by use of sound and video animation to bring new space into being. The dancers are challenged into holding the energy and intensity of the laborer, as well keeping every move functional. In contrast to the mechanical and disciplined language of movement, the dancers are also expressing the laborers’ inner life and dreams. Through movement the historical laborer merges with the modern dancer of today.
