Andrea Nann and Brendan Wyatt's ‘New Planes’ contemporary dance project necessitates a particular prop or armature to augment the traditional dance environment of horizontally- and vertically-planar surfaces.  

This first constructed prototype -- named Leo -- becomes the third performer, a body made of bodies, a body which produces bodies, bodies which become body.
