A sequence of extreme physical endeavors through the encounters of bodies and logs.
A group of performers are thrown into a sequence of extreme bodily endeavors which manifest in their physical encounters with wooden logs. Ruled by hidden regularities, they carry out various activities; dragging or knocking the logs, rubbing against them, experimenting with balance exercises, or trying to escape the risks of their own games. Through their reciprocal dynamics, the body and the logs return to their basic modalities as raw materials, defined by their volume, weight, or texture.
This piece oscillates between subtlety and rawness, poetry and aggression, consideration and maliciousness, egoism and collaboration.
This is a tough world, but not necessarily Cruel. Danger surrounds everything. It is caused by the performers, and their proclivity to risks. As a bodily affect, danger stands here also as an artistic offering. It suggests a new interpretation as to the notions of vitality, somatic existence, and their role in our disruptive era.
