In simple, universal clothes, which had been specially designed for the project, they performed a dance consisting of ordinary, daily actions that relate to migration, travel and being on the move.
Artist Hans Op de Beeck (°1969, Turnhout) made several art films, including his internationally acclaimed 'Staging Silence' (2009) and 'Sea of Tranquillity' (2010).
