Deform Amoibe is a sculpture of flexible material designed for a human body. The combination of hard (plastic) and soft (textile) provides a movable space, in which remarkable forms can be created. The performer is engaged in an exchange with the material which reacts to her movements. Amoibe is a Greek word for change and indicates a single-celled organism that can change its form.

The performance switches between the individual and a synchronized movement of the group. The performers use all their senses to animate the sculpture and place it between the audiences. The sculpture can become a wall, that excludes, encloses or merges compassionately. The sculpture can remind you of fleshy skin or the lacquer finish of a red Ferrari, by which it explores the boundaries between man, nature and object.
