This project confronts the vital, emotional and visceral space of the body with its negation, by proposing to act as an image, a support for a sensation, an element of an architecture. The piece opens up to multiple interpretations in which the history of the place, the cultural heritage and the expectations of the call are plotting the reading.

A performance act activated at daybreak, at the moment in which the detail becomes a sensation and concept, and the bells of the Labastida church, with their atavistic sound, accompany a piece of electronic music made for the occasion by Nasim López-Palacios.
