We hit the bank, we will not drown,
we will just remain insane. Just
strange. Memory, a handful of coins in a burning lake.
And naked unprotected
Become a rock, not feel.
(Anna Ondrejková, fragment)
The performance was inspired by interviews with a community of
young people living in London who while on the run found themselves in limit situations. A stage composition balancing on the border between physical theatre and concert features seven exceptional musical and dance performers.
The performance is dedicated to our friends from Tibet.
