Description Graindance is comprised of two parts. In the first part there are five dancers, "Steppers", whose very slow movements in the space form a very meditative landscape. The second part is a solo, in which the dancer moves in a box filled with gravel - an instrumet by sound designer Antti Nykyri - creating unprecedented sounds.
