'attention, attention' in the land of power and beauty
fitness increasing in spring presents an improvised choreography between one male athlete - oneballerina and one messenger
while the athlete and the ballerina are exposing their bodies in the most sublime matters during a workout - a messenger is broadcasting sentences from today’s news reflecting on male and female entities - institutionalization and social roles
sculptural requisites covers parts of the body - at the same time 'replicas' of sportive gear coordinate the motion
together they formulate a zero degrees dance based on gesticulations that transposes gymnastic activity into a cardinal sculptural language
