Departing from the persistent action of running as ongoing element, this scenic and musical season proposes a paradoxical poetics: running becomes symbol of resistance and negation against the established social and economic order, but at the same time embodying the submission to the principles and ideals imposed by this order.
These elements crystallize in an approach built from the synergy between the musical discourse, the performatic element, some principle of economic theory and the real time elaboration of audiovisual materials.
