This performance is about augmented reality and robotics, and offers a choreograph-ic experience that opens to multiple levels of sensory perceptions. The dancers get dismembered and multiplied within an unconventionally conceived space, mis-shaped by a repeatedly changing viewpoint, where a robot is placed on the stage and projects their digitally duplicated frames.

. A duet between the human being and his doppleganger, between man and robot, tells the full unsettling story of our present time, when in the attraction that compels towards progress in sci-ence and technology often seems to abide the threatening risk of loss of humanity. The movement unfolds its dance within a non-narrative context and turns the events to sensory experiences for the audience, that on getting themselves captured and projected on the stage walls, try their chance to face up with their alter ego.
