Video performance that slides through the web of memories and sensations. The body of a woman who becomes lost in the seek of self and despite that, moves on balancing herself between the chronological time and the states of suspension and of absence of time provided by dancing. It consists of the idea of two characters within the same woman, with no distinction of time and space, as if they dance with one another in an enclosed room, opposed to the open space on the other side of the glass - as if it can only be seen, but not touched - to the sound of Knee 5, a piece of the opera Einstein on the Beach, by Philip Glass, in which people who have changed the thinking of their time through the power of ideas, not military power, are celebrated. Symbolically important in the current political scenario in Brazil.
