LEMNISKATA is a dance piece for 14 male dancers and one female performer who portray the origin of life based on female symbols from Mexican culture. With the movements of their naked bodies they visualise infinity. An impressive stage set, sound design based on prehispanic instruments, colourful human-animal masks and live music make this new work by Mexican artist Lukas Avendaño an experience for all the senses.
