"It just seems like certain situations and events have gravitated towards this project.
Things that I could not see I actually see.
Things that I could not hear I actually hear."
Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopez

Years of living above the polar circle have brought us here, where time is set out of balance and the forces of nature no longer applies. How come Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopez died in a car crash, considering she was the only one wearing a seatbelt? Cerebellum was removed to the trash folder. Mythical masterpieces were created, indulged by visual presence of the extraterrestrial as well as the subterrestrial. Rivers were crossed, trees were exposed to nuclear disaster, and bridges were burnt. But only to ressurect and manifest themselves as the true bearers of hope. Flights where executed and jumps were made. The pure essence of living in the now, and the true weight of arrogance towards the gravitation of life.
Is there a need for breaks when balance runs out of value?
FIGHTING GRAVITY hereby presents itself as a chance for you to navigate through this mess of memories, unexplainable phenomena and historical alterations.
An experience intended to widening your perspective on things you thought you´ve seen, never seen or thought you´d never see.
Enjoy the show!
