In this performance we did not aim to create a linear storyline, rather a series of connections between the two performers, the imaginary space and the space of the black box. The content of the series of moments the show was composed of, saw different degrees of realness and abstraction. We created an ironic and magical atmosphere with clear references to many theatre clichés, not through scenography or sophisticated props but using mostly our own immaterial performative input.
