Sinnlich, rhythmische Qualitäten von Bildern verschiedener Körper in Bewegung an unterschiedlichen Orten zu zeigen bzw. übergangslos per Videoschnitt-Technik nebeneinander zu stellen, ist die Idee dieses Videos. Welche Spannung ergibt sich aus den räumlichen Zäsuren und was erzählt der Rhythmus der Bilder? Welcher gedankliche Transfer wird durch den Wechsel von Innen- und Außenraum, Tanzstudio und Natur, hartem Boden und tiefem Wasser möglich? Was erzählen die Ortswechsel über die körperliche Arbeit und das Verstreichen der Zeit?
