Discovering and reinventing ourselves, interacting with each other, exploring the semantic ambiguity of the gesture through stimulation and awakening of the senses. A micro-community of dancers begins to prepare its own body producing warmth and irradiating it to the outer layers.
An experience of the process of rebirth that spreads across the space, the meeting from one to the other. From the individual to the universal.
A space, highlighted only by a few light sources scattered on the ground, a mysterious, perhaps aquatic place. In the roots of our body, disintegrating any mannerism and superstructural implication, one finds the amazement of being a kaleidoscope of bodies, shadows and lights. An empathic apotheosis of a deafening whisper: We are not alone.
