Tribute to the brilliant American composer of the 20th century, John Cage. A study on sound, on the absence of sound and on the reactions to the sound itself. The use of instinct related to movement is of fundamental importance in the construction of this piece. The dancer follows the tracks already traced, but the variations, in the hands of the public, to his voluntary and involuntary reactions, make the show always honest and never really replicable. The spectator, more than ever an active part in the show, also experiences opposing dynamics. On the one hand, probably unsure of instinctive reactions that could be judged "disturbing" to the show itself, the audience suffocates their instinct for action, almost as if not to take responsibility; on the other hand, as soon as he realizes that he is a welcome "guest", he eagerly accepts to become an active part of the dialogue. The work is an ironic and amused analysis of the current cultural condition, with an aftertaste of bitterness and disillusionment due to the weakness of man, who gets used to everything, even the total absence of culture.
