'No Cover’ is a project of dance and science, inspired by the geometric form of a dodecahedron. Conceptually, it is based on the study of the temporal and spatial observation of phenomena under the laws of quantum mechanics. The work is composed of six different geometric costumes, which allow the development of six choreographies. The result is an experience that will be performed in front of an audience. The central idea revolves around the experiment of the performance itself, where failure in execution will be observed in relation to costume appropriation. The eighteen-month long research project comes to a close at the time and space of the Mise-en-scène. Here the audience will witness the entire process of the project, ranging from testing and exercising, to consuming the costumes.
