Y también mañana. “I’m hesitating again, as time passes by in the midst of uncertainty…Tomorrow I’ll hesitate again, an ongoing inherent doubt. So many things keep on repeating over and over, only some of them evolve…” This piece was developed from the research through different tools of movement, working with the concept of doubt and its various connotations as well as the physical and psychological reactions in the human behaviour related to this idea.
