"Welcome to EDEN-to heaven on earth.
A playground of freedom where you might give birth,
To hope and to love and above all to yourself..."
"...come and join the wonders of EDEN."

Imagine a group of people being invited to a place with a specific vision: living and relating with each other without any judgment -in playfulness, empathy and respect. Not having to give up the uniqueness - their Otherness – neither their longing for connection. The theory so far.
But are we really able to cope with this utopian vision? What are we willing to sacrifice for it?
And: Is our heart really wide enough?

The Other Door: Stepping through The Other Door grants you the liberty of experimenting with your identity –a space to be yourself. The body is the blank page on which society etches its constructed texts– how we think, how we behave and what we accept as the norm. This piece explores the possibility that, when the body is stripped of its socially constructed layers, it has the potential to expose transcribed texts that are more deeply embodied, revealing a truer core that is far removed from what is socially acceptable. An ambiguous creature. Throughout the production, the body is considered to be an unfinished article, constantly evolving to expose a new Other. Conceivably, the Other has the potential to challenge simplistic views as being merely framed by two binaries – right or wrong, male or female, acceptable or unacceptable.
