Osma was particularly interested in starting this project in Cape Town, South Africa, since the area has a strong tradition in dance. He was introduced to two companies - iKapa Dance Theatre and Cape Dance Company - which both play an important tole in the local dance community of Cape Town.

The body of a person who dances in a magnificent machine. Every limb, every arch, every glance conspires to turn a human being into a living sculpture. Osma finds in very inspiring, since dancer’s body is naturally dynamic. He closely observed dancers’ intense emotions expressed by movement, what resulted in a beautiful body of word.
