Circus artists are not afraid to take risks and take full responsibility for their recklessness and undisciplined practice. Through a circus show, two performers use aerial acrobatics as a technique to continuously search for the balance between two bodies, using a rope with two loose ends 7 meters high. This rope, this impermanent and inconstant thread, alters the viewer's perception of the bodies on stage. They start from this rope that hangs the need for something more than a simple connection. They depend on this connection, on this rope that suspends them and holds them. That ties them up and holds them. Any action triggers a consequence in the state of the other, and it's this dependence that forces them to trust each other.
