A stripped piece, almost naked, a ritual in which both creators are delivered to a intense and meticulous physical workout, to a study of the melee, to explore issues related to the encounter with the oher, the persistence and the resistance, the company, the love… In almost total silence, the body takes the absolute importance and are the physical actions -hold or leaning on the other, abandon oneself or surrender, living and breathing or balance- which sculpt the scenic narrative. The excercise of love is a piece about the need for set physical and emotional links with the other, on the ability and/or the desire to stay with someome, about the passage of time sharing and about all the little things that are happening to us in the meantime.
