Two individuals are wrapped in a mechanical structure created in advance, and practice physical effort and repetition; a gymkhana to be performed till the end in compliance with rules and te behaviours have been learned through the years . Yet they long for sensations to come through movement and action: they do not always succeed none the less they keep on trying once with frustration once with motivation.
What binds them? How can they create rituals while being witnesses of what happens and, at the same time, generate action? What one proposes always affects the life of the other. How will physical, emotional, psychological or spatial situations be combined? What about each one’s identity on this journey?

(translation by Caterina Cavallo)
