The sun set twice on the same day is a masked dance serving as a rite of passage.
The performance is situated between states in which, one has left one place but has not yet fully integrated to the new one.
Facing the impossibility of returning to that place, all efforts concentrate in creating new surroundings and how to integrate with them.
Repetitive movements, spacial disorientation and avoiding recognition are part of the consequent transformations of the self identity.
The mask, as a ritual object, is a collection of dates made of masking tape. It informs temporality, for the time one is present in one culture but absent in another.
