A man and a woman stand off in poetic battle, holding between them a double sided mirror using only their body weight and pressure to keep it from falling. If either loses their step or fails to resist, both will fall and the illusion shattered. The struggle with the image transforms with time into a battle of spirit and energy as physical exhaustion takes its toll. Neither can see the other and stares blindly at the reflected image of their own naked torso, cut at the waste with the legs of their partner in an androgynous portrait of Ritualised Resistance.
