Three "masterpieces" on stage:
One musical: The string quartet in D minor "Death and The Maiden".
One physical: The human being in all its excellence.
One spiritual-philosophical: The mystery of our end and its continual watching over us.
Our thoughts go back to human existence and that which defines it: life and death. The beginning and the end are the miracles of our existence as is the impermanence of our being, with its constantly mutating (oppure "changing"-mutating peuò essere un po' negativo) forms. This moving from one form to another is found in dance: bearer of such a task and in itself dangling images in front of us which continually appear and disappear. For this reason we have pondered on what could be defined as a "twilight zone" in dance, intentionally caught in the exact moment of impermanence and transience.
An example of written music which aspires to the infinite and accompanies the listener beyond a rational idea, towards the unkown and transcendent. We have tried to comprehend and open up,like surgeons, the body of this writing in order to study the gaps, the hollow spaces. More than ever this time, composing has been like an eternal falling, an escape from every end and every sense.
