Sintonia investigates the cognitive skills of attention and perception. The audience will receive an iPod that allows them to choose the songs they would like to hear during the performance. By altering the way we use senses, dance is built on actions and scenes through visual and auditory stimuli, and what is perceived when we are attending to anything. The female is the particular theme explored and focused on the performance. Line inner and outer, action, stillness and movement. Dance emerges as a generator of imagery of thought, feeling, and engaged all the time when you are aware that a situation exists, you realize or know that it exists.
