In Bento's sketchbook, John Berger draws an analogy between the act of driving a motorcycle and drawing. This performance-experience explores this merger. The proposal is simple: the artist (driver) takes a viewer (passenger) to drive around in his motorcycle with a specific purpose (running errands; deliver a letter; visiting a person or a place, or simply wandering about the city). The body of the performer is offered as the trigger of an eternal movement of bodies. An agreement based on trust; leading, accompanying. A temporary union. Stability and movement. The weight of two balanced bodies, moving about the space, together with the visual record of said movement. The possibility of saying: ''I was here, and moved in that direction''. Thinking about the motorcycle's trajectory like a line drawn on the floor. Understanding that not only do we have a body that sets us apart from others, but that we are a body incorporated into an extensive, symbolic matrix; the body as a sign, par excellence, of mobility and transformation.
