Younes Bachir and Strings Attached will create large-scale physical theatre that will transform the intricate walls of the Turbine Hall into a vertical stage of endless possibilities, guiding you to reflect upon the mystery of human nature.

Imagine hanging, dancing bodies intertwined with audiovisuals, transporting you to a place of awe and introspection.
