Two characters, Jam and Jem, who are abstract, without history, kind or psychology, are questioned as they interact in an intimate, surreal, amusing and hermetic game where the poetry of the dialogues and words, unites them with the poetry of the physical body and gesture.

The theme is the physical and mental ambit, the perimeter surrounding us and establishing our being, our space and, at the same time, our border. Where does the self end and where does the other begin? What happens to the ambit at the moment of contact? When meeting, are the ambits modified by penetrating one another?
Faces appear and they repeatedly interrupt the action. They are spies and unknown foreigners. Jam and Jem feel threatened, invaded, they are afraid, they fight for conquering the place where they are, to defend their “broken” ambit, and to return to theirs “normality”.
The individual ambit, by now shared with another individual, needs to be defended by the curiosity and by the external attack.
“The Ambit” discloses naivety, weaknesses and the mechanisms that we develop for surviving, it is the mise en scène of a process of knowledge, a spiritual trip of definition of the self and his/her relationship with the environment and with the other human beings in a light, delicate, aerial, and surreal atmosphere.
