Appearing in the movement of water is a solo piece where lines are traced in between what seems isolated, creating ephemeral sculptures and live images with everyday life objects and elements from the surroundings. In this performance, body and elements brings to the space questions concerning mobility, orientation, territories, and the female body. These questions appear and disappear over time, going from the abstract to the concrete and from micro to macro scale. During the performance, questions and elements, such as oranges, fans, electric wires, lemons, among others, are explored through a poetical and sensorial approach which creates a visual landscape that shares a common ground between the visual arts and the performing arts.
