Based on the Train Announcement Poem, this video poem was shot at the port of Ancona, Italy, with street signs, factory sirens, lorries, early morning workers, joggers and tourists as a backdrop. The performer follows a red path on the street, walking and dancing, then stopping at the Clementino Arch, at both sunrise and sunset. The camera is either very close or very distant to the performing figure offering a double perspective of the imaginary journey which is evoked in the poem.
