An individual’s trials through life, emotional turmoil and circumstance, the bitter sour quality of existence,, and the battered but resilient nature of the human race.
Divided loosely through different pieces of music, the dancers in groups and pairs, knot and release,cling and fall, are weighed down by unseen burdens, and swing with childlike abandon.
