In 59 minutes, linga investigates the guiding principles imposed on us by society: high-speed and high-performance. Social standards evaluate the way we move, rectify trajectories, determine and set more and more productive targets, exploit space, reduce the margin of error or laziness, implying that movement is just a succession of measures and calculations. Speeed (59 minutes precisely) does not take sides for slowness against speed but goes on with a choreographic process in tune with social situations.
