A Westfalia camper travels through our cities and unknown places, transporting 8 dancers and a musician.
At each place the musician will give a concert using the sounds of the environment in which he is, while the dancers are often seen in the distance, in always different choreographies and sets.
This series of performances on the road is a tribute to all those forms of existence different from ours, to those presences that appear to our eyes as aliens, existing and non-existent at the same time: these are all animals and plants. Minerals and glaciers… But also the foreigner and the different. They form the fabric of the landscape, but in the landscape they merge until they disappear. They are light and evanescent presences like those of animals, camouflaged forms where the boundary between the body and the surrounding is always uncertain. They are impossible plant intelligences. It is the foreigner who is here and elsewhere at the same time. It is the different that we do not understand.
