The star Betelgez is expected to explode as supernova. A second sun will rise in the skies of Earth. The brightness of the explosion will be so strong so it will appear in the sky for approximately 15 days.

A comparison of the explosion of a star with the social explosion.

A collage of short shots of political speeches that sounds more like announcements of explosions… towards big changes in the global map…

Speeches that promised the birth of new conditions,

in which nothing could be like the old ones.

Speeches that inspired a revolutionary ferment,

which would tear down fundamentally the old order.

Words that had as a result to a constant vibration of the humanity at a high frequency and to scatter faith ,hope ,certainty… but at the same time anger hatred and despair.

A clear opposition to the eternal cosmic time and the ultimate fact of a cosmic explosion. A landslide disaster in our context, while at the same time the most promising rebirth…an end that generates all these elements that will give one more chance to the phenomenon of life…at least as we know it…

Six dancers -acrobats manage a surface that does not have stable equilibrium.

We die many times during a lifetime, the cells are updated, the bodyonce again becomes almost from the beginning, the present of the experience gives birth to new selves, to defend unwittingly, the idea of a stable "I".

And we are immortals. From a material that was made in the beginning of time, penetrates the meaning of the form and will exist until the end of time, if end exists.
