This performance is about our everyday struggles inside our identities. We all have the wish to be seen and accepted. The wish to actually meet another person and not just an identity meeting the identity of another person. Sometimes when meeting an identity, it is possible to get a glimpse of the person behind the identity. It is a fragile, beautiful moment. That moment is life. That moment is a true moment of sharing, of meeting.
