Beginning and end, creation and destruction of the world, immaterial, life giving, omnipresent, Primordial and necessary, continuous and incessantly, rhythmical and eternal, mysterious and marvellous, sacred and intelligent.

Conscious life force. Breath/thought, thought/breath. The gift of God. 
In joy, in sadness, in fear, in anger, in surprise, in sorrow, in suffering, in love, in cry, in birth, in death. How conscious are we about its value? 
What is this breath, the air we share, living in an ecosystem which exists thanks to it?

A dance work with ecological allusions formed and created via the coexistence and enacting of dance and sound as it is structured during the investigation of the performativity, the expression and the musicality of the polyrhythmic sounds of the human breath

"What does it mean to feel trapped into your own body?        Not to be able to speak out, to shout, to sing, to cry?                To feel like being a silent cry?"

Echo who has been punished by Hera to repeat only the last words uttered by others, and she has been deprived from her own voice, falls hopelessly in love with Narcissus who drowns in the dark waters of a lake, absorbed by his own reflection to which he falls in love.

The myth becomes the base for a research on the sound of the body and the "body" of the sound. Through repetitions of gestures and movement phrases, music soundscapes of emotional intensity and visual images that create an outline of the myth, the narration at times dissolves into an unidentified darkness and at times reveals like the choreographic language, the essence of the myth in a direct, detailed and crude way.
