During the performance the venue turns into an observatory for rhythmanalysis, as proposed by the French philosopher Henri Lefebvre in his work Rhythmanalysis: Space, Time and Everyday Life, where he describes a view through a window as a simultaneous position in the interior and the exterior; a place from which it is possible to reflect biological, psychological and social rhythms, with the body as the point of contact.
