She turns around, puts her sunglasses on.

She walks carefully.

Her hands are reaching forward leaving the darkness behind.

A presence is following.

We are stealing time for something fearful to happen.

From the series of studies for ‘ROMEO HEART’, this piece unravels a new chapter of the choreographer’s vision. Dario describes this work to be nearly a dance piece, nearly a theatre piece, a movie scene or an installation; the combination of all married with a strong sense of aesthetics.
