I’m connected through glass object with another person. I’m separated through the glass object with another person. The glass object connected our bodies but doesn’t let us go closer to each other. We start to communicate slowly in action. Sometimes our thoughts are synchronised, sometimes they are in opposition. The performance is finish when the glass object is broken. Our bodies and minds are free to decide if we go closer or one go in different direction.

A piece of glass, is stretched horizontally. Two people shot off camera in a frantic dialogue. Both hands in close-up are trying to draw. Two thoughts in action try to communicate. Two hands, two thoughts sometimes in synchrony, sometimes in arrhythmia, sometimes together, sometimes against, sometimes against their will. In this movement of pendulum, the two people seek to coordinate, to avoid breaking, or so, to provoke. The forces cancel each other out, the forces are tenfold. Resist, submit. Impose, abdicate.
