About the piece:

Short Stories Big City

One performer, the space and you - the spectator. You enter. A mysterious figure welcomes you. Electronic bits come out of the speakers. A stream of fragmented reality is unfolding in front of your eyes: daily life, street images and familiar human behavior is taking over the space. What is this about? The city is dancing. Watch: who is this funny guy and why does he speak so strange? And what about that woman? What does she want from you? Oh! And look over there: there is somebody who looks like you. Now, keep watching. What is this about? The city is dancing and it's dancing for you. Observe: something will emerge. Be aware. Do not lower your eyes: the city is dancing and it's dancing hard. Are you following? This is about you, about us. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the show...
