Lute is the sparkle of embers in an ancient Italic dialect. That enigmatic sparkle that so hypnotizes in evanescent geometries. As if it were the pulse of a code that was as alien as it was universal. Like the languages we do not understand but which capture us as if in a dream: the stranger, all animals, plants, minerals. Which leaves us dumbfounded and in love as if it were the saying of all things. It is in front of those embers that the man began to tell fantastic stories. Almost as if that sparkle is the abode itself and the origin of the dream with open eyes, of invention.

Immersed in an empty space and made sparkling by special light effects, two figures appear as unidentifiable beings who dance and build strange objects. Their skins sparkle like a mineral and they carry on their shoulders a dried flora that is mysteriously colored by chemical baths or genetic crosses. Their perpetual and incessant action suggests a mysterious activity of bees. Something exact, almost mechanical, transpires in their actions in drawing spatial trajectories and geometries. They dance in an invented language, which crosses different codes and ultimately chooses none.
In memory of Alan Turing.
