The carrousel, a space in constant rotation and repetition, becomes a metaphor for the path of humanity. In search of the evolution of the species, we move around a hinge, always returning to the point of departure. On the way, we experience and transform that which surrounds us, on an eternal odyssey in search of perfection, but is it possible to achieve it?
This choreographed search, focuses on an imaginary tool, suggested by the positioning of the body in space. A body that defines itself in its search for an identity, moving around a central impulse, attempting to create a circular and repetitive panorama about the birth of humanity.
