On the passing of time, the construction of a sculpted work.
The work is revealed and composed directly under the eyes of the onlooker.
It is a choreographic and sculptural work in which the performing body is an active model in the construction of a work of art.
The procedure of the construction will be staged as a show: the body, through action and movement, strength, resistance, enters into contact with the sculptural matter.
The choreographic work does not consider the static form of the sculptural pose, but dynamic contact and the possibility of interaction and action on matter.
Luisa Cortesi



The performance is part of the project “Focus on Art and Science in the Performing Arts” with the support of Culture Programme of the European Union.
