1. Solstice speaks of the highest or the lowest point in a trajectory, the tipping point, the end or the beginning of a journey, the onset or the loss of hope. A concert-performance in search of strong sensations where the dance escapes from a body at the service of a vocal proposal.

Solstice is the first development of Celestial Spunk.
