An affluent neighborhood in the suburbs at dusk. Slow camera takes unveil three people in a dimly lit private residence. In a setting bearing close resemblance to the emblematic post-war cinema era, three well prepared actors take the stage. Instead of well crafted dialogue and a cinematic exposition, the actors stay mute and somehow display repetitive motions and seemingly odd patterns of behavior. The scenario is being commented upon by an off voice, juxtaposing sound fragments of the 1957 film “On Performance” by dancer/choreographer Martha Graham.
