Description A so-called dogma piece for five dancers. Choreographer Railo has written specific rules, seven dogmas, to guide the choreographic process. The first one says: "the choreographer should be quiet in rehearsals. In case dance is a part of silent communication, it does not need to be defined with words in rehearsal situations either." However, the most complicated one of these dogmas probably is the number six: " Dance must impress its spectators by its beauty, and it must be felt in the lower stomach of the spectator."
