“TRACCE” comes from the Italian verb tracciare, which means to trace. La traccia means the track (plural tracce).
Life is like a journey through a landscape full of tracks.
Tracks of other people and of occurrences/events.
Sometimes one gets off the track, searches for one, gets on the wrong track or finds and follows a new track.
We all want to come “home”. Today many people loose their houses and homes and never find it back.
There is a lot of chaos and despondency. There are people finding a home within themselves.
There is a need for new orientation, visions and perspectives.
This story is individual and universal.
It is all about time-tracks, space-tracks, animal-tracks, pain-tracks, God-tracks, word-tracks.
Each choreography is a trail of intentions and feelings in time and space.
