Alito Alessi


Span of Time  |  Alito Alessi

The piece is a dedication, a remembrance, a memorial. We come from, take from and return to the earth. We all live on the same earth, breath the same air. We are all physical matter and conscious compost for future evolution. Let us practice the art of being together.

Choreographed by Alito Alessi in collaboration with Jana Meszaros and Toni Alvarez
