What is consciousness? When a thought comes to mind, where does it come from? We have many ways of sensing the world around us. Still we find it hard to deal with the things we cannot capture in words. Perhaps fearing the chaos of the incomprehensible.
Circus artist Marta Alstadsæter and dancer Kim-Jomi Fischer meet between their genres in a physical duet about this continuous inner struggle. Proposing to face questions without giving answers, they invite you to make peace with the things that are hard to explain. And to embrace the many sides of being human.
