ZELLEM is a performance project that includes dance, video art, texts, drones and sound landscapes.
Within a white space, there are five squared boxes, made of a transparent, milky white polycrylic, in various sizes. In the center of the white stage floor, 3 video works appear and disappear.
Two performers, dressed in white, dance on, in-between and around the boxes in a slow and minimalistic motion, both intense and serene.
The performance space is drowned in layers of sound vibrations, shimmering words and broken sentences.
