Join us for Homologia, nominated for Premio Scenario 2015.
An eternal silence punctuated by habit. An old man, alone, in the vacuum, in constant drowsiness.
Something comes down from the attic and awakens this numb body.
Welcome to Homologia. Homologia is both a studio of man and a studio of what is identical.
A telescopic vision applied to human in the effort to produce careful analysis. A big illusion. An impossible birthday party animated by hundreds of abortive attempts.

toPRAY is a long and narrow passage to the human soul. We move through the symbols we have ascribed to what we cannot see, to give life a different value. They say that "we have a soul." But what does it mean to "pray?"
