A community performance of art in the natural landscape that investigates the phenomena of disappearance, evaporation, and the end of things through music and dance.
A group of children and artists are on the move. They search the abandoned villages and find them. They are almost behind the sun and are full of memory, of the stones, of the plants that no longer talk to men. They are now the animals that inhabit them. The space that is created between the disappearance and what leaps forward, for now, we cannot decipher: this is the space of this dance, where it sweats, sings and counts on words whose syllables almost evaporate: the songs of the bees when they give us news.
EVA is a mare that, in this imaginary tale, disappeared from the meadow without anyone, not even the geese, noticing. The fantasy that is drawn in the air by the gestures and the calling voices, this fantasy is the power that grows in a space that mistrusts the present moment.
This will be the ethereal subject of the show, that finds like the climate, that nature gives back to us. It brings together boys from different schools and worlds with artists from the theatre of objects, music, dance, the great and fabulous theatre of life. They are, in this circumstance, the "drones" which, in rebellion of the customs in the hives, worked to the heart, to sculpt this will to exist in the air.
