Starting from walking, the dancers will draw individual and collective trails through space, designing the landscape for the piece to unfold into. Not only will the design of trajectories and their intertwining be a way to spatialize House dance footwork, but also to generate it. As the dancers gain momentum, their trajectories will start interfering with one another. Collisions will occur, altering the regular course of their walks and runs. Gradually, these encounters will give rise to new stepping rhythms and lead the dancers' gates to morph into complex feet constellations.

Bernard delves deeper into Fernando Pessoa's Ode Marítima by researching how this epic poem can be translated into (moving) images. During her research, Dolores invites fellow artists to encounter her and props from previous pieces, guided by Martha Nussbaum's acclaimed work The Fragility of Goodness: Luck and Ethics in Greek Tragedy and Philosophy.
