Elephant oscillates between a sense of isolation and a yearning for human connection. Two bodies move in labyrinth patterns, trying to reach each other in vain. Jumping backwards and forwards in time, they find themselves searching for moments of togetherness while at the same time experiencing the inevitability of loneliness.
