Synopsis

The French philosopher Simone Weil wrote that “attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity”; ‘Andante’ (Walking) is an invitation to pause, to connect to the senses, to be in the same space with others and not have to say or even see anything.

The word ‘andante’ also refers to a musical movement which is moderately slow, like the start of a work, in which the four performers walk while they sing softly, commencing with a simple harmony sustained over time. Little by little, geometric formats become more complex in the space and the harmony becomes a song, it increases in volume; the energy grows and finally a big cloud takes over the space by surprise.
In reducing our vision, our sense of smell is sharpened with perfumes that alternate during the rest of the work.

And while the energy grows and the performers cross the stage a great speed (mutually looking for one another but without actually colliding) the mist becomes more and more dense until we can no longer see anyone onstage and the attention switches to the audience.
