A young couple settles down in a large abandoned industrial warehouse. An orange strip, glued to the floor, partitions the area in two equal portions: to the right, his sculpture atelier; to the left, her dance studio.
Pendular takes place in this setting, where art, performances and intimacy mingle together; where the characters slowly lose their capacity to distinguish between their artistic projects, their past and their romantic relationship.
The first inspiration for the film came from the performance Rest Energy, created by Marina Abramovic and her partner Ulay in 1980: “It was a performance about complete and total trust, where I could actually die” Marina said.
