This work was made and "in progress"showings given in the annexe at Chapter with little to no technical possibilities. There were 5 rows of single bulbs which we coloured blue and green and the rest, what there was, was either ambient and reflected light or from candles and the street lights outside. Consequently, the video possibilities were very small, and the small audience of invited guests had also to work quite hard to see what was happening! _ so not ideal!

Despite that, thanks to the continued support of James Tyson and Chapter for this "uncompromising work" and the astonishing power of "The Focus Point Technique", the performers were able to do an excellent and concentrated work and the perseverence of all was rewarded by showings that reflected the huge potential of this, as yet, incomplete work.

We are currently looking for financial support, sufficient to be able to finally complete this very long (up to this time 5 years, with Dante variations in Welsh, Romanian, English and the Italian original) but very interesting journey.
