Nine dancers wear full body suits matching their various skin tones, giving the impression that they’re naked, and their bodies entirely covered in delicate black tattoos of foliage and landscapes. They snuggle together in a tight line facing right, hip to hip. The dancer at the front has a red heart shape on his chest and leans back, lips pursed, as if about to kiss the dancer behind him.

…things get broken, and sometimes they get repaired, and in most cases, you realize that no matter what gets damaged, life rearranges itself to compensate for your loss, sometimes wonderfully.

A dancer is bent back backwards into a spiralling shape that echoes the spirals projected on the floor: knees bent almost to the floor, their torso is near horizontal; one arm extends towards the floor, the other is about to swing up. A light shower of dust or sand is descending onto them.
