I’d like to remove words from fact.
The fact is the body, absolute construct, enclosed within matter, matter,
self-evident, questioning,
free of cognition, of intention, of wakefulness, present,
semblance, simulacrum.

For many years I have been looking for a logical and existential pathway that relies on experience as well as philosophical reasoning. I draw a rough parallel between the themes of situativity, of being thrown in, of the fall in Time, and the theatrical device: an artifice that recreates, by way of a forcible exposure to the World, the condition of being ‘open’, the foundation of feeling.

Free of references within contemporary choreography, the scene proposed by Habillé d’eau is a perceptive hypothesis where everything is a sensory datum, a force field in which solitary and tense figures are equally body, time, space, light, silence, sound; an immersive dimension that, embraced and formed by the viewer’s perception, comes into being and becomes language. Object of the investigation is the body: limit and questioning surface, involuntary and unfathomable matter, origin of meaning before and beyond words.
