The thing is?...


A dance of cause and effect, of action and reaction, of choice, chance and determinism.
Fate, coincidence, accident – we confer meaning on to the arbitrary and gloss over destiny.
The only way of expressing emotion in the form of art is by finding an ‘objective correlative’; in other words, a set of objects, a situation, a chain of events which shall be the formula of that particular emotion…” – T. S. Eliot

Dancers with boxes unpack objects chosen by you.
You unpack the rest.
