Views of an imaginary civilization, two figures in a journey of attachment and survival against the backdrop of a world destroyed. Chronological gestures create an 'instrument' through which develops a language of unique, magical quality; revealing an inner world of dreams. While 'the instrument' transforms from a tool of creation into an instrument of destruction, the journey to Magic Valley draws upon primal coexistence, violence, the birth of culture and the gift of imagination. Movement, sound and video installation illustrate the power of images, the delicate balance between desire and danger and the interplay in our circle of life and death.
