dust and sand falling in the mouth, the eyes. a living body that insists on staying. silent. restless. What is unnoticed? What settles? What does this body hear and renovate into dance in this prison that is now a museum?

excavation is a dance installation taking place in the passage between floor 0 and floor -1 of the museum of aljube. a research supported by the national centre for culture (young artists grant 2018).
