A theater play about the impossibility of mistaking a bird for any other animal because of its feathers.
In a universe characterized by rules, two women fall in love with each other while others cannot. A woman follows beauty tips and a man considers himself to be the victim of paranormal activity. The absurdity of daily life, the fear of death and the mystery of the human soul create a poetic world full of contradictions and hope with a unique narration interrupted by scientific information. It’s an accurate erotic composition, an enigma based on reality. Reality is funny.
This is a minimalist piece that encapsulates eastern civilization, in a certain sense. It is a work that examines existence, responsibility, the high risk of love, aesthetic blindness and the role of art in the modern world. It provides a humorous perspective on human relations as an incredibly unique cosmos in need of revision and reunion. It is an attempt to make the gaze more tender, using the quiet joy of braveness that can overcome fear through love. It envisions the present as a moment of coexistence, as eternity. In the end, even death unites us.
