We seek everywhere what is beyond things,
but what we ever find are only things

This piece is an extended exercise of our current research on interferences in fictional, narrative and performative practices.
In this piece we focus our attention on the architectural conditions for the emergence of a performative event by establishing a collaborative relationship with the public.
In order to test this kind of affective and social involvement, taking as a starting point fictional space, we maintain the rotation and drifting between narratives to grasp reflection and extension of this fictional space onto the world and vice-versa.
For this, we had to go back, to subtract the body, the gestures, the dance and the theatre to dedicate ourselves solely to the contents and matters and therefore observe time, space and points of view as navigational tools with which words are organised into stories.
