This new creation immerses itself in the physicala relationship between life and Earth, underscoring that we are part of nature. The essence of the movement of the human body as a raw material contains the resistance to the most destructive and relentless forces in the universe. With an abstract dramatics closer to musical composition than theatrical narration, this play is like an ode to life, to Earth and its fragile atmosphere.
