"Dimensionality is engendered by the performer's degree
of concentration. It is produced by an uncommonly close
proximity to the second, or (for lack of a better word) the
moment. The resultant experience is a sense that there
are "other" levels in the performance intriguingly just
out of reach." - Keith Berger, Mime Artist
