To go from emptiness to a dimensionless form, to change (of place, of world). The passage and the path is the starting point for several characters who act and interact in making decisions.

Dalet is a letter of the Hebrew alphabet that refers to the door. A door without lintel that allows to go, to cross, to transit. A going from emptiness to form without dimensions. Dalet speaks of a crossing in the desert, of obligatory steps that are taken infinite times on the path of evolution.

This symbol, this energy that allows us to change places, is the driving force of a creation for six dancers and two musicians. The starting point from which several characters begin to make decisions. Figures that, supported by the group, give meaning to a landscape full of symbols that have to do with nature, its conquest and reinterpretation.

The humility of throwing ourselves on the ground and waiting for the grass to grow on our skin is a recurring image that accompanied the whole process. The surrender of the water to its course. And dancing. Dancing knowing that it is the ground that moves and we only react to it through the air.

The work moves from a part sustained in gesture and dance, towards a place of reverie and magical representation.
