(the heart of the matter)

Choreographic performance composed for one performer, one actress, one musician and a constructed sculpture.
h o m, initials of heart of the matter,
h o m for homophony with Om or Aum which from a Hindu point of view symbolizes the vibration of all existence.

h o m (the heart of the matter)

In the beginning, the space is littered with objects of wood and metal.
Beginning with a dance of construction.
The dancer-builder assembles with force and fragility fragments that surround him. At any moment, everything can collapse. Slowly, a sculpture takes place.
Playing with the law of gravity, tempting the edge of the fall, appears a poetic form, mass, weight, or lines of force that emanate outward towards moving bodies and objects. Then, as if it was there from the beginning, serenity.
