Unspoken beauty reveals itself when certitudes are turned upside down and the fragility of existance becomes evident. Six dancers: two women and four men. three with and three without physical disabilities: Six people born into a time in which daily grind can lead through hidden corners into unpredictable ends, in which familiar structures can turn threatening and danger a thrill.
