From the Greek roots poly, meaning many, and choros, meaning room or space.

In geometry, a polychoron is a four-dimensional shape. It is described as a closed figure which is composed of elements of lower dimensions: vertices edges, faces, and cells. In the work, these elements frame the action of characters which display more organic features and often their transformation is the result or instigation of those actions.
