A group of dancers animate a sculptural installation by Brendan Fernandes  of of five structures, ten hanging ropes, and a central cage. The minimalist objects, which both assist and encumber the dancers, enable poses that test endurance in overt displays of physical tension and self-control. The structure, which resembles a cage, offers dancers a space to rest and stretch.
