A close relationship exists between the world of art and that of the sacred. Pauses has shown this. Not in an authoritative nor confessional way, but in an analogy:

that is, by means of the combination of heterogeneous elements from visual arts, music, dance and the world of words. The scenario is a monument of a religious

and civil civilisation, transformed into an enveloping container of finds: evocations and provocations.

Milan Cathedral


pause 2005



From darkest night to dawn.

From death to resurrection.

From music to dance.

From hands on the keyboard and on the strings of the violin to the entire body of the dancer.

From Stockhausen to Bill T Jones.
