As if imitating the trajectory of a periodic celestial body, this dance presents itself in a form never attempted before which, assuming the denial of a beginning and an end, projects itself endlessly into a cyclical return. To do this it must first of all get rid of a story, a dramaturgy, narrative references and even a stage set. Leaning on a time of revolution like a comet, this solo appears in certain areas or spaces for eighteen consecutive days during the year. And more precisely in three different spaces, but a short distance from each other (one theatrical, one industrial and one outdoors), before disappearing and reappearing the following year. As an event of nature, or cosmic event, or as a hypothetical exercise, the dancer appears in the disarming simplicity of his dance, which every day does nothing but fulfill itself in the trajectories and dynamics and arabesques and twirls that compose it.
