A choreographer invites a set designer to be her teacher in movement. Two young artists Kristīne Vismane and Rūdolfs Baltiņš has met for the first time and created together a performance What is Zeir? where they talk and dance the dance.

Everything started with a simple experiment Zeir, which was more like a game with no intention for result. The important was the process itself. On stage Kristīne took a story she had recorded during a chance meeting with a stranger and transcribed it into movements, adding music, lights and costume, all while revealing the creation of the choreography. However, the process led to an unexpected (existential) question: What (the hell) is ZEIR?
