Choròs. 
The place where people dance

In a place like any other, a collection of actions, gestures, walks, runs, simple movements – in repetition.

As in an ancient and instinctive ceremony, fragments of images, atmospheres, shards from a collective subconscious race each other.


Women and men walk, they choose one place and then another. Sometime they meet; other times they clash, and so they become one body, a mass, a collection of individualities, community, a flock, a pack.

Men who become choruses, or witnesses of events that happen in the “choròs”, in the scenic place where people dance, talk with their bodies.
