“Salt Itinerary transcends theatrical and music conventions introducing Miguel Azguime and Paula Azguime’s concept of new Op-Era. […] It revolves around languages, words as meaning and words as sound. […] Live audio and video electronic processing and diffusion of the voice, poetry, gestures, music and the drawings creates polyphony of senses and a counterpoint of meanings.”
