Description:
This work consists by four characters, everyone moving on roller-skats in a dark and empty space. Each one has also to carry a weight, a wooden box, which for some is small and light, for others is heavy and big. Its not clear in which relation they are between each other, if they are friends, neighbors or meet for the first time. The epicenter of the narration is Niels, who is in a depressed phase of his live and lies motionless above a gigantic box. His state drives the others to react or not to react to his condition.
