Counterweight plays with the crossover between the raising of the theatre curtain and the descent of the miners cage, a switch from light to dark in opposite directions. This kinetic work sees the two cages, one made of coal, one made of light, ascend and descend in the main foyer of the building. The theatre is named ofter the Miners Gala, so this juxtaposition is particularly appropriate in the setting.
