The choreography is build entirely from different ways of slowly dragging/carrying each other. Seven performers form small clusters of two and three as they move themselves on the ground. The ones who are being dragged and the ones who drag interchange their roles casually throughout the performance. The dragged ones surrender completely to the care of the draggers.

Concept & choreography: Eglė Budvytytė
Created with & performed by: Stephen Agisilaou, James Andrews, Kathleen Campone, Benjamin Hancock, Louella May Hogan, Mohan Lakshimpathy, Victoria Mantynen, Giuliano Guerrini, Jacob Jensen, Luc Muller, Thebiga Kanesalingam, Markéta Kuttnerová.
