Portrait of choreographer and sculptor Toer van Schayk (1936), who wants to devote more time to fine art, but still regularly roams the studios and wings of the Muziektheater and other dance theatres around the world. This indecision marks Van Schayk’s life. Meanwhile, the time has come for introspection: should he have focussed on only one discipline? And are dance and fine art just as fleeting as life?
