A year ago - for ecological reasons - my dance collaborators and I stopped all air-travel. Instead, I started contemplating new practices in choreography, like restaging the group pieces The Show Must Go On and Gala, with an all-local cast and assistants. Still I wish to go further by writing solo dance scores which are eloquent transmissions, so that I do not have to meet the dancer. Whilst I was formulating the dance scores, the Coronavirus crisis started spreading fast across the globe. This project thus became all the more urgent and necessary, especially since theatres everywhere were being shut down.

At the invitation of Fabrizio Arcuri, I will carry out this experiment for CSS Di Udine, this summer, with the dancer living in the region, Laura Pante.
