A piece that presents the performance of twin dancers Manami and Sawami Fukuoka, one based in Osaka and the other Amsterdam, and a film by the choreographer herself Hangman Takuzo. Twin dancers who have obtained totally different physicalities through working on different dance languages with different backgrounds, and an actionist Takuzo Kubikukuri who questions life by hanging himself regularly — resemblance and difference, self and the other, existence and nonexistence reveal the suspended time and space between ZERO and ONE.
