Description Light, created by Sebastian López-Lehto, examines the corporality of lifting and being lifted and the experience of presence in reaching out towards the transcendental. López-Lehto sees transcendental as so-called invisible, and as entities exterior to humans such as “world”, “universe”, “nature” and God. Through the themes of lifting and descending López-Lehto aims at approaching a kind of religious (ergo reaching towards transcendental) corporality that is not body negative. When going up you must fall down.

The performance asks what sort of mind withdrawing aside – kind of death of the self – has? Why to produce such subjectivity that destroys itself? What is the dance of guidance?
