Description Sex, cruelty, heartache, and rebellion boil over in this intense picture of adolescence played out in the repressive atmosphere of a Catholic school dormitory. Nimble performers jump over and under a whirling metal bed in a daredevil dance. Lovers recite Shakespeare. Women use men as target practice in a shooting gallery. The cast of six men and six women of Carbone 14 interweaves theater, dance, and mime in a fast-flowing, surreal, erotic tumble of images and emotions.
