First, there's a storm: shapes and animals. A shift, three figures. One of them jumps, then a long chain of symbols, origin story. At night two of them wrestle with the angel, they take turns and on occasion work together. Meanwhile a modern dancer pursues grace; she is geometric and precise, unemotional and rigorous. Obviously there is anxiety, but in that, possibility. It ends with a card game and the blurring of human and animal.
