The concept is creating randomness in a theatrical space by equipping the dancers with individual Ipod Shuffle units, and let the shuffle mode decide what will happen. Failure and mistakes are part of a contingent "success".

Working Title is the first research part of a triology concerning reality and representation using an interdisciplinary set-up to question everything. We fear that the result may be counter-productive; watching a ballet dancers sleep without turning in to the Sleeping beauty.
