Gunilla Heilborn and Marten Nilsso (Sweden 2005, 12:22 mins)

How will his city friends cope with nature when Henrik gathers them in a summer house by a lake, deep in the forest? How will they react to each other, way out in the wilderness? Henrik takes it upon himself to confront his friends with these questions. The different individuals interact with the lake, the woods and with each other through performances and meditative practices. They experience different behavioral patterns than in city life and they experiment with their physical capabilities and their functionality in nature by following certain tasks such as fishing and jumping. They learn to get in contact with themselves. This work is a collaboration between Swedish artists Gunilla Heilborn and Marten Nilsson.
