This lab is a place of experimentation.
It is a space where major transformations and detailed operations take place.
What can a choreography be?
By collecting and recording successive steps (shrinking, twisting, jumping, leaning, running, etc.) we analyse this concept.
Methodically, we store and arrange all our findings, gathering infinite possibilities of composition and discovering the parts that will lead us to the whole.
This is a laboratory where we build choreographies.
