In every type of dance, from the traditional and the classical ones up to the modern, there are many mathematical concepts. Some of them are unconsciusly used, both to find harmony of human bodies in the space, and for the logic. In contemporary dance techniques some choreographer noticed the strong presents of math and decided to taking inspiration from them. With this video we want to show the presence of topological and geometrical elements not only for help public to see some abstract object, but also to make the audience aware of how maths is presented in everyday life.

The video is the last realization of a larger project that has involved a primary school and a ballet school. The performaces that can be seen in this video can be used for every level school project.

The music has been chosen whit attention: "Knee 5" from "Einstein on the beach" and "Metamorphosis 1" were composed by Philip Glass; their melody and sonority allow to exalt choreographs elements. The "Body Percution Song" is a clapping music song, that is music composed only whit body, voice and percussion; it was chosen for its energy.

Words, scenography and images are essential and helpful for the audience to focus the attentiin on the dancers' lines and bodies.
