“When a man is just born, he is weak and flexible. When he dies, he is hard and insensitive. When a tree is growing, it’s tender and pliant. But when it’s dry and hard, it dies. Hardness and strength are death’s companions.” Andrej Tarkovsky, Stalker, USSR, 1979

In this performance, three dancers and a beatboxer make the struggle against the adversities of a paralyzing world physically tangible. The piece questions of the relationship between physical and mental forces as well as how human beings bundle their strengths in order to move beyond their own limits.

The combination of martial arts, krump, dance, live sounds and the given as well as sculpted space create a dense atmosphere and images for which each audience member creates their own contexts, evoking memories of one’s own physical condition and experiences.
