Turning backs works as a participatory installation that combines body, voice, text and scenic devices to orchestrate two rows of audience in opposing fronts. With their backs turned to each other, the audience will be a kind of a coral body, giving voice to subtitles, movements, sounds and representing together a world where realities constantly oppose.
