Amalgamating and creating resonances or interferences between different temporal dimensions, from the 12-beat flamenco rhythm to the beat of the performance (the present) and the more dreamlike rhythm of the video imagery.

Weaving these threads into a visual tapestry where the different spaces at times cohabit, at other times withdraw from each other. Singing of memory and hope, of yesterday and tomorrow, interpreting through movement human resistance and the will to live of bodies, destined for oblivion, that rush 12 in 12 (12 beats, 12 hours, 12 months, 12 years) headlong toward the abyss.
