The performance takes place, as always, in the dark. Only here, the theater has gotten smaller. There is room only for two hands. In order to watch the film, i.e. in this case to touch and feel it, the 'viewer' (user) has to guide his two hands through the entrance and into the theater. The curtain then rises, which formely only rose for the eyes and now finally also does so for the two hands.
