Final presentation of the participants of the workshops conducted by BBB
The presentation was based on the simultaneous activity of workshop participants. Each of them operated "in their own space", independently of the others. It can be said that each of them performed a performance of one gesture, but the actions of individual participants of the action contributed to a coherent whole.
