Site-specific installation dance performance inspired by haiku, Zen calligraphy and gardens.

Weaving poems, movement and objects enso attempts to touch the subtle inner experience of reality while creating an eerie atmosphere of suspension in time.

During the Edinburgh Fringe 2010 enso was performed in 3 different places (Dance Base, Edinburgh Royal Botanical Gardens & Dovecot Studios), exploring how contrasting spaces affect the experience of the piece.

Director/choreographer: Merav Israel
