Summary: Explores space as the dancer's canvas. The dancer shapes and gives boundary to the space around him and forms it into planes and volumes, directions and distances, and qualifies and makes apparent an otherwise invisible void. Animation is used in addition to live action to give a visual picture of space both inside and outside the dancer's body. Among the dance excerpts included is Noumenon (from Masks, props, and mobiles) choreographed by Alwin Nikolais.
