Two bears engage in a pas de deux, attempting a conceptual version of the art of dance. A gunshot, the representation is a disaster, one of the bears falls to the floor. But we mustn't count our chickens before they're hatched… The "beast" rises up and resumes its dance as another gunshot floors the other bear. And so on.
Behind this apparently childish entertainment, the company's bitter-sweet allegory of the abyss of identity, the fact of being exposed in plain sight, like dancers and artists.
It is not difficult to see an animal metaphor for the condition of the artist in general and the dancer in particular.
