HIATUS consists of a show that crosses theater, performance, sound art and visual art, starting from the concept of hiatus - failure or pause witnessed in a supposedly continuous phenomenon - for experimentation and sound interaction. The movement, sound processing and amplification, the manipulation of objects, as well as the capture of biological phenomena, converge towards the creation of new states.

The primordial Absence is felt down the spine and slips down to the earth. Eden can be sensed in another dimension. There is no longer innocence here, just the echo of an idea of innocence from another time remains. The dilated pupil belonging to the shape who is not apparently present knows that silence is dark. And so we practice ascension by screaming. "Release". Turn up the volume. "1, 2, testing, testing..."We need more amps here! Here the body is already something else, dreams dragging themselves across the floor, reverberating on the cellular membrane. Interference, noise, static, feedback! Tuning in... the ritual of freedom!
The synthetic sound is processed through solar storms, off-compass heartbeats and matching colors! One scratches into one's chest, unearths the soul and dares taking the path in stereo sound. We tear down walls, dance to exploding popcorn and lo and behold, the "Deus ex machina".
