The research moved around a question: what is vacuum? Vacuum as a physical state, but also as existential terms, and vacuum in the creative act. The theme of vacuum, from which the artists were unconsciously attracted and where they found during this pandemic, began to clarify and materialize through an exploration of recent discoveries in the field of physics on the origins of the universe.

They turned their gaze to science, which during the centuries has developed different ideas, changing each time, influencing a vision of the world, and reshaping our way of perceiving, relating and telling us. This exploration has led them in two seemingly distant worlds: one more mathematical, related to scientific aspects, and one more human, connected to a remote culture, through the founding myths.

The discoveries of the origins of the universe have inspired the narrative of their work, but also other stories, linked to different mythologies. This work has prompted a narration that goes beyond a visible story: pure dance and fragments of narration burst through images linked to some of the oldest stories, as part of a single story.
