Synopsis

Several dancers clad in white costumes move on a revolving stage. We see white silhouettes drawing up, with images of flowers, a dolphin, flocks of coloured fish and a street projected on them. The silhouettes are in a stadium and they race; there appears the winner's rostrum. The silhouettes step outside the projected image of a street and, here and there behind them, we can see the dancers who carry them. The silhouettes crawl on the house façades and break into the windows. The dancers in white wear paper masks on their faces. They brush their hair; they scratch their "faces"; they move twitchily. A lonesome lit bulb swings in front of the disguised figures. Shadows change the figures' faces. The stage again revolves with the dancers.
