A 16-minute performance for four performers: 1 human and 3 balloons.
A strange form is floating in the air. It’s a large balloon partially filled with helium. It seems to be manipulated by an invisible force. The human performer keeps negotiating his position with this unusual being. Who is leading who? How does one empathize with such a radical other? How does this even work? Is it directed? This is a transhumanist story, or a fairy-tale, or a symbol of alter ego. A formal choreography, an abstract performance, a human negotiation, a floating question.
