Today we live in a hyperconnected spiral of possibilities and stimuli.
Marina Nabais, proposed to the 12 participants to reflect on this body/mind on the verge of collapse.
Through a series of exercises and experimentations, the thesis of a return to a more contemplative/negative mode of movement was also sought, in which delay and unoccupancy allow the resumption of caress, abandonment and resistance. These two paths of existence – Active Life and Contemplative Life – lead us to two different kinds of fatigue with which we have to negotiate the progress of our lives.
NO proposes us the here and now, a permanent dance between positive and negative, inviting us to savor the true aroma of time.
