The interactive performance is based on a personal encounter over a sand dish. I meet the guest in a wordless – simultaneously ritualistic and playful – exchange of lines in sand, each move responding to the previous one, as a common language emerges in surprisingly beautiful patterns. At some point I begin to remove sand during the process, leaving less and less. Eventually, the shiny, black granite surface is bare, and the session is over. A new guest can enter the process, and a new breath of construction and dismantling can begin. What is left is our common recollection of having co-acted in a microcosm in an unfolding transformation.
To mennesker – den ene performancekunstner Helle Hove, den anden en frivillig fra publikum – mødes i en ordløs, legende udveksling af streger i sand. Et fælles sprog opstår i overraskende smukke mønstre, der siden brydes ned og forsvinder for til sidst at efterlade den fælles erindring om at have ageret sammen i et mikrokosmos i stadig forandring.
