in CONTRA the concept of light and space play a major role in the realization of the piece.It begins as if one looked into one level of action, then abruptly into another, back again and once more into another. Almost as if one person danced different roles simultaneously without them listening to one another. These different levels mix in the finale in a choreography which tears you to and fro.
