The experimental 360-degree dance film "Is a planet an enormous mountain?" creates a virtual event space that questions perception and reality. The camera is part of the choreography and is integrated into the performers' sequence of movements, but is also played as a counterpart. This unusual camera work overrides the set physical framework and creates new perspectives: a space of projections, light installations, spherical soundscapes and choreographic time sculptures that defines its own laws and pulls the bodies into a maelstrom, sending them reeling.

A game with illusion that takes hold of the whole body.
