"Our life is not behind us, neither ahead of us, nor in the now, it's inside." Jacques Prévert 

"Our life is not behind us, neither ahead of us, nor in the now, it's inside." Jacques Prévert 

From March 27 to April 5, we show the production as a video on demand HERE ON VIMEO. The link will be published HERE on March 27.*

SOLACE, shelter and support are the topics addressed in the play, narrated in the unique relationship between a child and strange, mysterious figures. Different points of time converge in a desertlike space, reminiscences and flashbacks of a forgotten past flare up, images are created, solely connected by memories. 

The production was originally to be shown as a guest performance at T-Werk Potsdam this March, but the live performance will be postponed until November 5+6 due to Corona.
