It's all about being high and down at the same time...

Like a guy on the skateboard. Or something like that.

Or like in the dreams in which we fly a few centimeters above the ground. That is if you remember such dreams (the adrenaline is concentrated at the landing).

My notions about the cosmos are chaotic. I cannot give you more answers about the mundane things, either. But I can ask you a few questions about both. This is what I do in this show.

This is what the author does in his text: cosmic convergences, premeditated (by whom?) meetings, free feelings through space, distorted vanishing points, false tracks (the temptation of the policier), carnal passions that evaporate in the stratosphere.

I wanted to work on each part of the performance in a different aesthetical regime.

To exclude any shadow of form racism.

To risk a harmony that contains about one hundred fourteen types of chaos. Harmony 114. This is the name of the capsule that contains the days and the nights of the two cosmonauts in the space. And whose signals reach the Earth more and more faintly.

Disturbed by the breath of one of the cosmonaut's daughter, Nastasia.

Nastasia is sleeping. She dreams of flying just a few centimeters above the ground.

Actually, she dreams the reality.

It's all about being high and down at the same time.

(you know what I mean)
