Using a slack-rope, the performance explores the tensions arising from the audience’s expectations and relationships to different materials and everyday objects. Through the help of the audience, the prop is created during the performance and tested until it breaks.

The staging of the performance is simple, without any tricks of light or sound. The material speaks for itself and the audience sees what is really present on stage; the paper is real paper, the fish line is a fish line, and the fire is a real fire.
