A hypnotic solo show for a 65kg puppeteer and a 45kg Aquapunching bag! Based on a field work research about their queer antiracist German martial arts club (company), the artists questions what it means to hold on, endure, create distance, focus and push boundaries. A suspended play around exhaustion, strength and vulnerability.
