A visitor may ride the bike. When he starts pedaling, the black object/screen starts to rotate, while a movie is projected on its sides. To see the story to the end the viewer must adjust his speed to the rhythm of the film. During the performance the space inside the object is occupied by a dancer, constricted by the screen’s elastic sides. The cyclist controls the rotation of the object/screen.
In the first part of the performance the dancer remains immobile and thus invisible.
In the second part, when she tires of incessant rotation, she starts to move thus slowing down, and even stopping the object. Her body molds shapes on the surface of stretching fabric, and the viewers realize that there is a real person inside the object/screen.

Installation Screen is a part of a project Limited Spaces which includes 2 works more. The time of performance of two installations Cube and Screenis 30-40 minutes. Each installation deals with a limited space and a dancer inside of it. The conditions of performers are different.
Installations relate to each other by light and sounds. Light of Cube installation reflects on Screens one. Both installations work are functioning in the same time with 10 minutes delay between. Cube installation begins and Screensaction starts 15 minutes later.
