In her last piece ›Chunking‹ Ellen Barkey examined the boundaries between dance, performance and visual arts. Now in her new piece ›The Porcelain Project‹ these boundaries have become completely permeable. The set is composed of hundreds of porcelain objects developed by Lot Lemm, which, despite their autonomous life as art objects off stage, interact in this piece with the performers and the audience.

»It is the integration and mastering of all elements that gives the performance a floating quality and makes ›The Porcelain Project‹ so artful. Music, stage design and performers merge organically into an all-embracing experience, pervading every pore«.
Danielle de Regt, De Standaard, 12.10.07
