Scientific studies show that our brain has a limited storage capacity. According to scientists, during the developmental process, each individual must delete some information so that new information can be stored. The brain decides what to delete, all that is considered unimportant, giving place to other intellectual, sentimental or survival information.
However, we notice, as time goes by that some of this information is not deleted. For some reason, it is kept alive, present, and we are still capable of describing it with many details, even after many years.
What happens in our brain that makes us keep whichever piece of information even after a long time?
This piece does not focus the scientific process of memory, but its ludic aspect. The choreographer offers a sum of the childhood memories of the three artists on stage using, for this purpose, some stories they have experienced. All those memories, stories and images were developed in a fragmented and independent way, generating what we could call “a fourth element”, an imaginary being, created from all these images.
