And it burns, burns, burns is the final phase in the project dedicated to the myth of Prometheus. Here, in the form of a site-specific excerpt, it features some of its most representative choreographic sections. The dialogue between the three dancers takes the form of rhythmic gymnastics in which the Promethean téchne becomes the unlimited potential of the body's know-how and the way bodies interact. Athletic drive and choreographic phrasing articulate the postures. Obstinate practice reopens the possibility of stopping time and time again, exposing the three presences to a constant immersion into the flow of the actions. It is a flame that never burns out, the horizon remains suspended between the possibility of falling or rising.
