From the most ancient traditions, it symbolizes the axis that determines the directions of organized space and connects the three worlds: divine, human and hell. This work reflects on how a choreography can be transformed into a collective rhythmic experience. Immersed in an atmosphere where movement, light and sound interact, the call of an “elsewhere” is perceived that can sometimes be reached.
