In this performance piece created by Mabi Revuelta, calligraphy, poetry and contemporary dance are merged together. On the stage of the Arriaga Theatre three female dancers (Izaskun Santamaría, Pilar Andrés and Nélida Ranedo) interpret a word search playing with sculptures made specifically for the choreography. Dance comes into dialogue with music interpreted by oboist Irene Zamakona (the sonata for oboe written by Paul Hindemith) and the poems that Vítězslav Nezval composed for the book Abeceda (Prague, 1926), recited by actress Mª José Moreno.
