This choreographic piece deals with the idea of escaping from self-withdrawal in order to overcome the difficulty of understanding others by means of a group - where one can encounter fraternity and various emotions. Thanks to moments of shared intensity, the individual is transformed and enriched in a kind of extension from "I" to "we". This aspiration to transcend one's own limits through a desire to be together echoes as a promise.
This quest is translated by undulations and dynamic gestures with stretched movements, aiming to reach beyond the limit of the gesture.
Perfectly suited, different extracts with repetitive rhythms from Philip Glass' quartets accompany this work.
