This specific performance try to find methods to use the image, movement and sound, creating a new sensorial experience. The videos are based on travels on both known and unknown places, where dream and reality are mixed and leave the audience the freedom to find their own path. The performance itself creates a spatial relationship between participants. The film, dance and sound create a connection between the real and the fictitious and aims to provoke sensations taken from the actual society.
