I started this project with the work of my homonym. I started from this coincidence in the search of its meaning. Seeking the limit of dramaturgical compilation, beyond loyalty or instant iconoclast attack. An appropriation that seeks to potentiate the figure and the present moment, perhaps the performer. A slow reconciliation with what has been said, with what we have seen and what imposes itself on our individual or collective memory as a reference. The calming acceptance that we are part of a continuous speech that refers to a remote beginning a few thousand years from us.
