The dance performance "Diorama" by Norwegian choreographer Ingri Fikdsal takes place open air in Seestadt Aspern. Ingri Fiksdal puts the lake and the surrounding park in the centre of the action and creates a large, slowly moving sculpture of bodies and objects. The piece captivates with its fine interplay of choreography, sound, scenography and natural light – it takes place at sunset.
