Sinopse: “Repetition and recollection are the same movement, except in opposite directions, for what is recollected has been, is repeated backward, whereas genuine repetition is recollected forward.” _ Repetition, Soren Kierkegaard

The portuguese term “Amenta” means to pay tribute to the dead, to remember.

A suspended atrium crossed by bodies travelling in concentric pathways on simple geometric structures that intersect, overlap, duplicate and converge. This continuous stream is composed by a succession of canonical pathways, folds that are repeated by the cyclical movement, distinct in each recovery, the body acts while regulatory element of time. Hands hold the preponderance and they introduce the motion traced by the body, where the gesture approach vegetative and zoomorphic forms.

The sound composition is inspired by the music of Fanfare and Procession (common in Portugal) as well as cyclic constructions found in music of static nature.
