“The three figures I put on-stage represent archetypes‚ the concretions of humanity. Through movement I’ve tried to make a dynamic of behavior visible. SCORE has been composed as a mosaic‚ like playing with building-blocks‚ a partition of alternate images‚ with the need to express the longing for another reality”.
