    Description (of a description)
    Born from the words of a distressing text by Susan Sontag, Description (of a Description) is the narration of the unpredictable event about a man who suddenly collapses on a pavement. The distress caused by such a dramatic incident comes to the light through the words and the action of the performer herself who describes it, in a climax of movements that become always more unstable and insecure in a precarious balance on the rarified space designed by Hans Peter Kuhn.
