This 12 hour performance considers physical and mental work, the discrimination of people on the grounds of race and class as well as staying power, the power of endurance. The performance combines various actions with moments of stasis. Each action has been stretched beyond its so-called natural length of time to emphasize the determination and self-discipline that enable one to move forth despite the mental and physical difficulties that are involved.
