Distant Matter by Van Dijk &Half Life by Eyal

Seven performers with futuristic/queer features cross the stage front and back, one by one, showing attitude and self confidence. The outfits are all in black although very eclectic. The most peculiar one is the lady with a black body and stretched shirt, black socks arriving over the knees and a motorbike helmet that reflects what surrounds her.
