An unconventional walk through a public or non-theater space. The guide comments on the changing body. The viewer passes through the space and encounters various music and dance situations, observing the events at a pace that suits him. Short performances in different formations freely relocate and regroup, inspired by the space and its atmosphere.
Thus in the course of one evening the viewer is exposed to different layers and associations of different places. Every event by the Moving Orchestra acts as a living part of the public space and is a mediator between its genius loci and the viewer. The various associations, specificities and beauties of places that are easily hidden from view in the normal rhythm of the city are uncovered.
