For this video we worked starting with the principle that in the beginning was the movement, life wrapped up in the Earth. Bodies, various and sundry, coalesced and rose until they stood, unsteadily, on their two feet, wavering and wobbling to keep their balance, since bodies are force fields traversed by a thousand vectors, stresses and strains, motions and commotions

In this video we worked with the premisse: "Walk to the outskirt. Stop. Walk along the outskirt. Stop. Stop in one spot. Stop and feel that you never stop. Walk along the edge. Stop on the edge. What makes you stop? Walk in between, somewhere in the middle. What is your middle, your midpoint?"

In this video we worked with the premisse: "Choose a route and walk to mark your presence in that place. Draw a line in that same place, a path. When you stop, live that moment as part of a path, an ongoing action. Think of it as a long pause on a journey which in fact never comes to a stop."

This video was filmed at Laurel Forest, one of the main european primary forest, in Madeira Island. We worked for the longest nights of the year, when the end of a cycle arrives. Nature, bodies recoil into a process of synthesis and the constellations reveal themselves.
