Medium format work for 3 dancers

Italian forum  

Aimed at adult audiences

Based on the text "Mass and Power" from Elias Canetti, which lists the characteristics of the masses, their symbols, behavior and movement. One of them being the rain that is configured as a conglomerate mass of drops; they detonate a fall movement: "There is no direction that makes a more impression on man than the fall", Canetti. This piece take the concepts of failure and fall to experience thee ephemeral in the behavior of the masses.

The language is created from the movement mechanics of the objects on stage, specifically wooden scrolls, to create a "seesaw" that generates a child like atmosphere using weight and balance. What moves the space? What is it that connects things and gives meaning to their existence?
