He presents his characters inside a cinema at the beginning of the 20th century in Vienna, in unbelievable positions reflecting the eternal movement, the continuous shifting that seeks the relationship between stillness and exercise.

He creates two antagonistic worlds in a single space, where some of the individuals are immobile and some are in constant movement. The dance, exercise and contortion do not achieve closer postures, understanding between the individuals.
