Making up a community with an imaginary folklore, 7 dancers form a choir and explore the limits of co-existence through song. How does a group evolving in unisson reach a point of separation? What is the place of individuality within a society? How does a song move from communion to exclusion? Where is the line between joyful explosions and warlike detonations? Experimenting the relation between body and the physicality of sound: what the body alone can produce, in its interiority and exteriority.
