This video investigates the complexity of building on each other. This is shown metaphorically through a group of five people balancing on an rola-bola, a balance tool commonly known from the circus. In order to stand on it without collapsing, the group has to perfectly coordinate. Everyone is responsible in his movements for the entire group.
