In this piece the performer is linked with a mobile camera via a nylon thread. Each of his gestures pulls the camera sideways and animates his image. A strange dance develops which throws the performer off-centre or even out of sight. His appearance on stage is undermined by his own effort. Each impulse to act threatens his position in the spotlight.
