3 Girls on a Beam

The beam gives a sense of elevation, while the height enables things which are impossible to do while on the ground. However the height also gives a sense of uncertainty, and when three characters are walking on a beam, sharing a crowded space, those frequent might lead to falling. The body is in an ever-present physical conflict, as it must move aside to give place for someone else. Three characters in different ages are looking to fly away or at least some grip in vacant space. At the very least it enables to hold one another in different states of merging and separation.
