i is a solo based on the concept of entropy which wishes to analyze the relationship between time and disorder.

Def. “entropy”: a thermodynamic quantity representing the unavailability of a system’s thermal energy for conversion into mechanical work, often interpreted as the degree of disorder or randomness in the system.

The physical principle of entropy is used as a guideline for the composition of set, light, music and movement.

i places a body in the middle of the Universe, inside a cloud of ephemeral matter and magnetic forces. The space is reference to a silver-based science fiction image, crossed and cut by precise laser light, which is made visible by a cloud of smoke while the music leads the spectator through a swirling dizziness for the duration of the journey.
From this hypothetical middle of the Universe it is possible to perceive the passing of time as a continuous increase of disorder, light and sound. Thus, the spectator can experience time from a different perspective, determining the birth of a space of meditation and contemplation.
