A singing contest starting in language and finishing in pure abstract tones in one continuous take.
Using their distinctive voices, a classically trained tenor and a performance artist share and compare their diverging interpretation of the two words HOME and HOLE - seeking meaning and common territory.

There is no easy outcome as questions of gender and interdisciplinarity come into play and the video can only conclude once a truce is reached (outside language). As the work unravels the two voices/channels slowly come together.
