What if you could no longer take movement for granted? Which gestures would you keep if even the simplest movements required extreme effort and complete focus? In this show combining performance and cinema three dancers and two performers experiencing a loss of mobility (a former professional dancer and a former boxer) explore on stage the necessity of gestures to connect and communicate with each other. 

Here, so-called disabled bodies and virtuosic bodies augment and influence each other. Harnessed to the present, they strive towards the future with the goal of gaining movement, by turning to the past, calling upon their so-called motor memory, the recollection of habitual movements and rewriting themselves in gestures.
