A meeting between contemporary dance and electronic music, focusing on a sense of gravity and heaviness that is common in the two expressions. In the performance we see three dancers that explore their own relations to gravity by challenging their physical limits, leading to both serious and comical situations. The heavy electronic music creates a cocoon around the movements, as the lighting design strives  to help the dancers break the laws of physics. The goal was to create a sensation of weightlessness in one second, and crushing gravity in the next.
