Strongly influenced by the Eastern musical modes and the philosophy attached to those, this piece unravels the story of one whose life becomes a constant striving towards a place of freedom and rest. Driven by the need to protest against any form of repression of individual freedom, she finds uncanny ways of existing in order to survive her solitude and longing. The story unfolds through clever and touching interactions invoked in the play of music, text and movement, where one loses the thread of cause and effect and can no longer distinguish between that which appears to be and that which actually is.
