"Fantasy and reality are equally personal, and equally felt, so their confusion is a matter of only relative importance."

Luis Buñuel                                                           

37 minutes of make believe makes use of movement and spoken word to facilitate the encounter between the performer’s and audience’s imaginations. The performance is an interplay between the spoken word and its possible interpretations, between movement and its materialisation, between what it is and what it could be. The result is a show which is deeply influenced by each spectator’s willingness to perceive, remember and imagine.
