Lyrical divertissement of remarkable satirist character with 16 characters defended by 8 singers interrelated within and outside the claustrophobic space of an elevator, accompanied by a piano and a violin.

Passions, feelings, glimpses, tact ... 16 characters inevitably sensitive to change, transformation, mutation of themselves in themselves.

We go up, down, forwards, backwards. Constantly. At all hours. Possessed by an inexorable vital moment.

We live in shared spaces. Share relationship spaces.

A musical tribute to the constant mutation, impermanence as the only constant in life, inside and outside each of us.

Critical condition and human society.

An ode to the contemplation of life that inevitably escapes every lived moment.

16 characters, a lift ..... and tempus fugit.
