In a place other than the stage, a place where children of that age usually live (houses, schools, gardens, squares, restaurants, museums), their story begin in a suspended time. This daily life
space becomes a surrealistic dimension by transforming the child’s energy/motion into an unusual work rhythm. This is a slow dance, bodies almost immobile, still, whose movements are
compressed, deformed, divided. This performance is an immersion within the "heart rate" of a fragile society.
Automatically, the question that springs to mind is : How a child can live in such society ?
