What is the weight of your desire?

How much does your desire weight? What can be measured and seen and what can only be experienced? To bare yourself, to denude, to undress, to reveal your emotions, to touch your own body, to get close to the core of yourself. Which of these is really dangerous and risky? These questions and many more are dealt with during a unique dance performance by a Czech dance group VerTeDance.
