Above an ink-black body of water hang five plastic tubes. Dancers crawl up and down inside them, anchoring themselves with hands, elbows, shoulders, feet, and buttocks.

The actors’ freedom of movement is limited as they can easily slide downwards. However, the positions they can assume have a profound effect. They reference themes such as birth, struggle, acceptance, captivity, liberation, growth, and decline. Like in a laboratory, we observe human life in its most elemental form.
