Two men are trapped in an endless and absurd world. Depending on each other, they try to make something of it. In an exhausting tour de force, without any physical restraint, the men drag each other up and down a structure of practical cables. Ruthless and tender at the same time. The Place to Be is a physical and visual performance about the struggle of people. What if everything is useless, can we still make something of it? In their attempt to find meaning and purpose, the performers explore the limits of the body. While rolling, jumping and running they pull each other through time.
