Sesions Remotes (Remote Sessions) is an exploration of an as yet hidden narrative that looks to develop unresolved questions by means of movements, gestures, attitudes, voices and the construction of a collage composed of faces, bodies and presences.
The installation features a series of images and recorded interviews in which 30 people of different ages and professions underwent the experience of dancing, alone, resisting time and tiredness, alongside a collection of short performative solo pieces.
