Since the moment the performers enter the scene and play the first note, [#5] follows a path towards breaking down the apparent status quo of every pre-established element on stage. Each of the agents shaping a classical concert situation (instruments, performers’ positions, lights…) are susceptible of abruptly disappear in order to start new games shaped with different rules. 

 

The continuous renovation of what constitutes the principal focus of musical and performative action, together with a sort of “anxiety” for escaping the piece by the performers, fastly exhaust every discourse. However and paradoxically, this frenetic process is getting closer to the corporeality of the performers, to the sheer being- on-stage of the basic, breathing organisms, which are able to speak, to move and maybe to produce some sounds.
