The clouds congested in the sky, obliterating all but a dim grey light, rendering everything a uniform lack of colour. Movement became increasingly difficult as I felt the damp, cold air pushing upon me from all directions, pressing me into a state of apathetic emptiness, where even lifting an arm became uncalled for, unnecessary. I felt sucked into a state of absolute stasis, which would prove to be all but impossible to get out of again.

This video is one of the tools for an open-source physical-theatre project by Jens Bäckvall and Christian Adelhorst Rossil.
Every day in 2012, we will create a small movement or other idea for the stage with a minimum length of 10 seconds. This will be filmed and uploaded. The uploads are not meant as finished material, but are sketches for possible further work.
Every video and the things done in them are open-source, meaning that anyone may copy, use or be inspired by the videos and movements and use them in any way they want to. All that we ask is that you mention our names in any flyers etc. if you use it. Also, we ask you to comment on the material, either through writing or creating and filming material of your own. Anything you upload will also become open-source and a part of the project.
In the beginning of 2013, we will create a performance, based on and using some or all of the material that we, and others, have created.
