Produced as part of the series Signs during lockdown in March 2020, “Mouvement figé” (Questo nostro andare fermo – Moving in stillness) is a postcard of the soul. It is a moving snapshot of the present moment that we are experiencing – caught between constraint and the need to move, between the search for meaning and the inconsistency of time. A poetic act for voice, body and images, a little original production of #videopoetry.
