Cecilia Colacrai and João Lima begin their meetings in La Caldera (November 2008), observing their common interests and the realities and concerns of each one. They look for a way of approaching and developing a working methodology.

From the reading of the space, the decisions (their triggers and consequences), the actions carried out and the description of a point/object, the possibilities of fictionalisation open up. They then turn their attention to the creation of a language of their own.

The title of the piece refers to a verse by the French poet Paul Èluard, 'La terre est bleue comme une orange' and reveals an interesting paradox about language.

Through a technical residency at La Caldera (February 2009) the process comes to completion, with the participation of musician Miguel Marín and lighting designer Xavi Muñoz.
