Nilda Martinez and Christian Serein-Grosjean explore the relationship that they bring into play on the stage. This relationship, fed by moments of closeness and antagonism, is put to the test through the use of objects such as a fencing foil, a wooden Japanese sabre and maces, as well as by climbing and using a Chinese pole. The dynamics of evasion, en garde and lunging underline the emotional issues of a relationship under pressure and scrutiny. Between domination and submission, the two acrobats develop a physical language that draws on dance, juggling and martial arts.
