Against a stark stage setting, an a capella and contemporary dance duo takes us on a sensory, poetic journey to discover a cultural heritage with multiple interwoven roots.
Based around a piece of visual art—a table cloth that has been buried, exhumed, and reconstructed—the body and breath compose a daily narrative that tells of the connection between east and west and that recounts the history of sacred song from modal song to tonal music.
A journey that takes us from the fourth to the twentieth century in fourteen languages, through the Mediterranean and Europe, in three subjective settings: earth, horizon, and elevation.
