The solos and duets in Wrap range from the contraposition between logical and illogical realities, focusing attention on the sense of time and space, on the labyrinths of perception. The absurd is the keyword, the common denominator for the creation of a choreography. From a physical point of view, the purpose of Wrap is to generate actions and reactions which have a conflicting︎︎︎ response, involving both intuition and mechanics. Cause and effect have no reasonable connection. The relationships between the characters are all built through this unusual way of responding to questions in absurd ways. In nonsense, intuition controls the human mind, then reason and consciousness work together to give a sense to everything, what we can understand and what we cannot.
