This choreographic work starts from the observation of those particular phenomena that we find in nature, where the forms are, in a manner of speaking, incomplete, or give rise to other forms before they have reached what we expected. Ossidiana moves on this path; it is a work structured into something hybrid, unexpected and morphologically unusual: like the obsidian, where the crystal will not ever happen. It is from this mineral point of view, this simultaneity, where everyone is busy to trigger and defuse all things, that each time the works fades into pure choreographic material, in live electronics in concert, in disguises with sands of the Eyjafjallajökull.
