The entire work is conceived as an experiment of Doctor Laba (Riccardo La Barbera), that tries to manipulate the actions of the two puppet-dancers (Alessandra Marzo and Michele Gatta) with the help of his hunch-backed assistant (Fulvio Rifuggio).

Doctor Laba personally uses a lot of sophisticated sound devices to reach his mad aim, and in this way he controls the movements of his own creations, that are the two prototypic puppets.
The hunch-backed assistant, in the same way, helps Doctor Laba to give the entire experiment a changing and performative setting by using real-time video effects applied on public and puppets' actions.

At first puppets are completely passive, they do everything under the controls of Doctor Laba, but after a while they begin to take consciousness of their own identities and so they both try to resist the commands of their creator.

The technology passes through the public and dancers’ bodies creating new multiplied identities, every sound and image is now abyssally reverbed.
In this disintegrating and synaesthetic crescendo all the identities colour and fragment themselves infinitely.
Will it be a disrepair with no shape and no end?
