The artwork reveals what each passanger is thinking during time commuting. The actors express themselves in a game of questions and answers as well as expressing themselves via gestures as they talk, by spuns, with some touch of humor. The aesthetic of their own gestures create echos to their thoughts, the beauty of their voices and their glances offer a tangible poetry, until they meet each other by an unison. The chord of the song is inspired by what the artist calls «the note of the subway» : The root of the chord is a mi#, same note that you can record in the subway in Toulouse when the subway starts.
Are they in the same temporality ? Are they together or separated ? Do they talk together ? How can they be in contact with the other ?
