Trees and wildlife look-on as the countryside is invaded by a lost regiment of soldiers engaged in a repetitive display. The ritual of military drill is by turns absurd and sinister. The soldiers of the Light Division perform a choreography that has been perfected and aestheticized in order to serve a function: to be effective. That is, the dual function of transforming many bodies into a single body and of mesmerizing onlookers with their ‘stunning’ unity.
