THE CITY is the first stage outcome of
the, in-development, practice of continuous skipping (as in skipping down the street).
Two performers are entering the stage to begin a stream of skipping, creating pathways and outlining geometries, while repositioning themselves in the imaginary
grid of a city.
With this piece, I am continuing my investigation on
the notion of distances (relational, physical and metaphysical).
