PASSAGE | PROMOTIONAL VIDEO
A Performance that tells the history of "Four old travelers, who walk among a universe of suspended objects, where through the memories of the past, that wrapped their lives, they find a new journey", fulfilled by an Installation in a form of "poetic interference that explores in the commonplace what the best it as, its multiplicity of sensations and feelings, making it unique by the environment that surrounds it. Emerging this form from oblivion and routine, transforming this common place in a ephemeral place of contemplation”.
