Synopsis : In the space of a square pit, a group of people negotiate the force of gravity within their bodies. They stand side-by-side, pushing away from the ground, reaching for a space and time that is suspended.
The cavity of the pit resonates with the impact of bodies hurtling in and springing out.
Connected to each other by time, they run in spirals, becoming orbits of themselves and each other.
Within the confines of the pit, energy accelerates and individualities surface, pitting one against the other. Moving, dodging, standing, breathing, counting, they are drawn together once again, in a collective spiral.
Time becomes a marker, gradually dissolving the vertical axis as bodies give in to the pull of the earth.
