Performance synopsis

The performance explores people, conflicts and problems of life. It encourages reflexion and analysis. It is built using projections, which makes it modern, attractive and also appealing for teenage audiences. It has strong aesthetic and emotional values; it is memorable and makes you want to watch it again. The story keeps the viewer in suspense and concentration. The movement, dynamics, music and changes of action keep the audience focussed throughout the performance, evoking great emotion.
