The Map is about the regulation of time, space and daily practices that we go through in our day-to-day existence. Based on codes of order and its mechanic reproduction, performers of different age, body shape and ability loop a step-by-step sequence of a physical regime. A linear series of gestures repeats itself cyclically, forming phases. The cycle becomes a human operation of pure physical effort. Under such metronomic conditions would individual bodies gradually surrender to sameness rather than differences?
