ADA is a balloon equipped with charcoal pens, filled with helium and floating freely in a white cube whose ceiling and walls are covered with PVC mesh. ADA leaves traces on the walls, ceiling and floor, which she produces independently through touch, the impulse of her fellow players, giving her an aura of liveliness and her lines the appearance of symbolic meaning.

The balloon set in action creates a composition of lines and dots that are unpredictable in intensity, expressiveness and line progression. ADA is an independent performer who covers the initially white walls with signs and creates a fascinating, increasingly complicated line structure.

In the choreography of Helena Waldmann, ADA - a drawing creature with the life of an emancipated performer - meets a dance artist, a master of intuition and spontaneous invention. Regardless of the prevailing prohibitions, they infect and touch each other. A dance pollinated by black coal, is developing in always uncertain directions. ADA and the dance artist rather develop a futuristic excitement, an "unseen life form", whose power and dynamics are triggered by the mutual touch.

The audience, in sufficient distance to each other, experiences the performance outside the action space through the drawing on the PVC mesh. Only if loosening becomes possible, the piece will adapt to the new conditions. Then the visitors can also enter the white cube or interact with ADA.

A text and music composition will be downloadable by the audience onto their own mobile phones using their own headphones.
