Online Premiere: Split
Until Oct 23, 11 pm
When confined to a small space, with no contact with the outside, encounters are not any more, everything just takes place in a space so familiar that it seems boring, will we cut off all associations? Or is it the time to connect to oneself – something that we occasionally forget? Each time like that, people “split” themselves.
“Split” is the breaking in piece, angled deeply inwardly. When outer space is limited, people discover emotions hidden deep within themselves, observe themselves under different beings, both separate and mixed, sometimes very confusing. “splitting” without separation, split to open, for stopping but clarifying, for reflection and for connecting.
