What is the space of our emotions? How do they move? What are their rhythms? What is their inner space and their outer space? What is their journey?
How can we structure all these stories with rhythms?
How can we construct an inner journey and make visible the feelings, emotions and passions that pass by our ordinary lives?
Could the audience inhabit and travel through a constructed universe with the Pulse of our characters?
The proposition of this production goes beyond an abstract behavior or a literal representation of an idea but is to create an instinctive source in order to experience what we cannot see on the character but exists in our life inside.
