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, and to bring out only the trail of its trajectory, it must first get rid of any narrative reference, conceptual content and even a stage set. Leaning on a time of revolution as a comet, this dance 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, in each of the eighteen days in which it is visible, does nothing but fulfill itself in the trajectories and dynamics and arabesques and twirls that compose it.
