The composition is played by two bodies, an architecture and a musical collage.
These first four elements have marked the direction for the creation of an environment, a physical-mental state, a rapport of events.
In this tableau events unfold one after the other and are twisted together in a musical score made of references in constant metamorphosis.
The choreography is punctuated by pauses, different speeds of bodies, processing of delays or advances, and faces the result of simultaneity and casualness.
“Time” is the parameter that creates proximity and continually redesigns new geographies and histories between the bodies.
Time can set up these elements in various ways, in conformations that at any instant might evoke stories, not faithful to a narrative sense, but rather constant in their metamorphosis.
Time changes encounters and connections, then shapes the result of the material forms it encounters.
Time acts as a sculptor does with his plastic work.
The performance thus becomes like the experience of browsing a book in its materiality.
