Inhabiting an abandoned site, two athletic dancers from Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre, rise amid the carcass of a building to physically reclaim the bedrock between the peeling walls of a former high rise. During the course of the evening, this displaced couple forge a family bond, retrieving past memories that gather momentum, and fill the vacant space with an unexpected beauty. The audience, from an aerial view, peer into the layers of light and space, to discover intimacy within the vast and deep underbelly of time.
