The performance is a reconstruction of places, perceptions and fragments collected by Alessandro Carboni during a research trip around several cities in South east Asia. The memories of the urban space, bodies and tensions that animate the cities are represented on stage by an informal mass of clothes, rags and fabrics. The dancer's body moves on the stage creating a continuous process of embodiment by wearing clothes and manipulating their shape. The dancer's body transforms, camouflages and becomes the new territory in which the journey memories are translate to the real space as to metaphorical and psychological.
