FRENCH FIRST PERFORMANCE
ACAPELA is a project that researches on breathing. It investigates how breathing can affect and, in turn, generate effects on our perception of reality By activating us from breathing we imagine a community connected through the air, where the inside and outside dissolve, where bodies empty out, are displaced, synchronize, hear and communicate from other sources, leading to the possibility to a new species.
ACAPELA is also science fiction.
