Four large balls each with an inbuilt audio system create a fluid landscape of sounds and shapes. Two break dancers meet two contemporary dancers in a chamber play about difficult lightness and pleasant heaviness. The ballet was originally conceived as a show for secondary schools. Shown ten times during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, 8–18 August 2008.
