There’s nothing to fear from old age, even though it can be merciless on the body. In the mirror of the bonds of acrobatic holds, a couple observes their strengths and weaknesses. Using the infinite variety of hand-to-hand work, Elsa Bouchez and Philippe Droz carry one another, support one another, push each other and repel each other. She fears ageing, he’s delaying, because the body always adapts to life’s realities. Accompanied by a symphony choreographed in six movements, acrobatic moves follow one another in a pared down stage set, limited to a white frame floating in thin air, or video images, projected on their bodies.
