A participatory performance that explores the connection between people, places and objects. Installed in each of the orbs are a vibrator, two types of LED lights and a FM transmitter. When they get together, the orbs begin to vibrate in response to one another and their colorful lights and sounds turn on and off. The participants carry one ball each and follow the dancer who leads the improvisational performance.
