This work was conceived as a preview of the new company work 2017 / 2018 titled CIRCEO, and is like a large navigation path, that before landing in an hypotetical and mythical place named Circeo, touchs another very far and mythical place named Hekla.

In an extended horizon with no usual landmarks, the dancers go deeply and completely into a slight and mutable universe, made of complexity of the movement and its dynamic qualities, as in an endless and hyptnotic needlework. In the uncertainty between the mental and the factual, between the nocturnal and diurnal, the dancers speak a language that seems to belong more to a stormy sea.

The work presents a parallel actions score, acted by Fabrizio Favale and Andrea Del Bianco. These actions that will happen in the two sides, left and right, of the dance area, in the shadow zones, change and influence the atmospheres and the mood of the entire work. And these are related with electricity, with the light changes, with fire, volcanology instruments, ice blocks, rocks, carbon, concrete slabs, uncertain animal figures… atmospheres that are in the half way from archaic/basic natural things and technological instruments and images.
