On a spare stage, two performers cross paths trying to complete conflicting tasks.

It doesn’t go well.

Through a series of moving exchanges, and a touch of the absurd, the two disagree, maneuver and negotiate, each adapting as best as possible to a world thrown out of kilter.

In their first collaborative effort, Ana Maria Lucaciu and Nathan Griswold team up to offer a singular experience, drawing deeply from traditions of absurd theater, clowning, and a rich vocabulary of contemporary dance.
