A colour photograph of a dancer on a stage with a black background. In the foreground, there's a plastic sheet balled up in a mound. The dancer stands in the background behind this on one leg, with their other leg positioned upward, their thigh a straight line towards the ceiling with their knee bent and toes pointed down at the floor. Their chest is facing the back wall, with one shoulder towards the ceiling, and their other shoulder and arm reaching down in paralel with their planted leg. They are looking down towards their hand.
