Athens, present day, now. A woman’s home — her most intimate space — is transformed into an urban zoo that envelops all the different aspects of her personality.
A surreal, existential dance solo. A tiny peephole, blown wide open to reveal an in-between space, in which anything personal becomes common ground and where the woman on stage will face the world as well as her own self.
