intensely creative Physical Theatre
with Adriana Salles and Andreas Simma

Each movement, he told me, has its centre of gravity; it is enough to control this within the puppet.
The limbs, which are only pendulums, then follow mechanically of their own accord, without further help.
He added that this movement is very simple. When the centre of gravity is moved in a straight line, the limbs describe curves. Often shaken in a purely haphazard way, the puppet falls into a kind of rhythmic movement which resembles dance ...
The line the centre of gravity has to follow is indeed very simple,
and in most cases, he believed, straight ...
But, seen from another point of view, this line could be something very mysterious.
It is nothing other than the path taken by

the soul of the dancer.
