Two dancer-acrobats take on Newton's third law: action and reaction. Or how physics is also circus. Beyond all virtuosity, René reveals the human aspects of what it means to truly work together, to share focus and to move in sync. This requires striving, a persistence from performers and audience alike. Through an impossible system of counts this show races to the finish line of a precisely choreographed movement composition.
