Walls can both protect and isolate. In different configurations the wall offers different amounts of stability, protection, and isolation for each performer. They sometimes use the wall to isolate themselves from each other, and sometimes build the wall together to protect them from the audience.
This work is about protection as well as vulnerability. It uses humour and absurdity to confront real issues of protection, isolation, and building barriers.
