This is performed in a twelve-foot by fourteen-foot pipe frame across which are tied ropes densely threaded with clothes - sleeves are woven beneath pant legs forming a solid rectangular surface. The audience is free to move around in the periphery of the grid as the performers dress and undress their way through this structure. A normally vertical activity performed horizontally and reshaped by the vertical pull of gravity.
