Un discreto protagonista is the story of an instant, the instant of time going off the rails, or before that, in which balance and symmetry break down to give rise to time. No bang, no noise, just a temporary vibration of air. Symmetry shatters and blurred presences overlap, mingle. They shift and change in a constant expansion. They are scattered remnants and fragments, which in a fluid space attempt to recompose themselves in geometric forms and relationships, generating ever-changing relationships. Within a blank page, a narrative takes shape, which goes beyond a visible story: pure dance and narrative fragments burst through images linked to some of the oldest stories, like pieces of a single story.
