[beisbo:l], phonetic for baseball, broaches the subject of the problem of integration into a new system. Different structural concepts and mannerisms come into contact with one another, which, on the one hand,  is very striking for the non-American spectator as a result of the baseball game. On the other hand, there are two actresses, who are apparently not conversant with this type of game and must, thus, be totally new to it. This is illustrated not only in their unpractised movements and helpness, but also in the disruptive impact on the remaining players and spectators.

The video was recorded during the course of a one-year stay in Chicago, USA and reflects the experiences and efforts of both actresses to integrate themselves in the new structures.lessness, but also in the disruptive impact on the remaining players and spectators.
