"SACRÈSTE"


There is an emptiness that fills up the space, that allows to be touched, that reveals itself full and invading. In its presence it is filled with gestures and prayers get written: eight dancers design new verses of faith and by the gift of remembrance, gives sense to the present.

They leave space for those who are gone yet have been there, those who have built, shaken, loved and forgiven. The void takes the shape and fills its space: this is the shape of maternal love, an eternal and otherworldly sentiment.

Eight dancers, men today yet sons forever, celebrate Mother of mothers by the strength and elegance of gratitude, protecting her memory and paying respect to the timeless privilege of being sons.
