"Continuity" experiments with the idea of the dancing body as a sculpture that continually transforms itself in space and time. The term "sculpture" is transformed from its original, static meaning, as used in the fine arts, and expanded into the temporal, ephemeral realm. Every moment is a snapshot of a continuum of possible formations. "Continuity" explores time as an objectively measurable, but at the same time highly subjective factor. The sequence of events perceived by the human mind – time per se – is used as an elementary design medium and becomes the subject of an artistic exploration.

The choreographic principle is based on the performance "in·between", which Walter Bickmann developed with the dancer Stella Zannou as a research piece. In "Continuity" the former solo becomes a duet, which counterpoints or complements the original material, or follows it in synchronicity.
