An attempt to bring the attention to "insignificant" details that constitute the familiar entity, by giving a spectator a chance to focus on different aspects of this same dance material. A game with memory: what have you seen and remembered? What has escaped your attention? A search for the "invisible" that is just in front of our eyes, helped by video and images. The aim is to develop a curiosity of looking that could be applied not only to dance itself but also to the world that surrounds us and the details that make up this world.
