In the distance, a woman seems to float through the crowd. Approaching, she was discovered sitting on the shoulder of another woman who placed her on one of the wires in the structure and went to sit in her centre. Sitting there, at the foot of the mast, pensive, isolated as on a deserted island, she takes the time to feel and listen what happens in her body, in her head... Is that her breath? On the cables around her, the body of her imagination is set in motion, in a minimalist dance. She observes it, doesn’t resist to follow it, to apprehend it; the encounter operates... Sound creation: The structure on which the bodies move is also a musical instrument. Four pickups skilfully placed on the structure capture the vibration, shocks, friction of sliding hands and feet, the bodies of the artists on the wires and the pole. The quality of sound, and the universe created therein, allows us to approach this intimate and inner gaze, theme specific of the show. Looped, superimposed and mixed live, the sounds of these vibrations create the range within which the music is written and is created anew every show. A musical work of listening and dialogue between the artists and the composer.
