.::: SYNOPSIS :::. 

As palavras adquiriram uma intensidade sem precedente, ao ponto de toda a gente reflectir longamente antes de as escolherem, porque algumas delas podiam queimar a língua para todo o sempre. (in Dimitris Dimiatriadis’ “I die as a country”)

The tongue doesn’t have any bones, but it can crack bones. (popular greek proverb)

      Triggered by an “invisible” enemy that exists in the space, we set a theatrical environment of repetitive, never ending, absurd impossibilities in a desperate attempt to fight against it. This threat, this “non-visible” enemy haunts the room and our ultimate goal is to take measures, to protest against it, to confront it. No one in the room can physically see it, but we can all breathe it. But how can one fight an enemy who is faceless, shapeless and even nameless? This enemy symbolizes an a-moral, invisible but quite dominant force within the circles of our western societies. We explore and question how this society of insanely fast changes and constant transformations, has left individuals un-armed, awkward and full of doubt.
