This project confronts the vital, emotional and visceral space of the body with its negation, by proposing to act as an image, support for a sensation, an element of 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.
