Performance synopsis

In ‘Today, Everything’, we drew our inspiration from the Book of Kohelet, a part of the Bible’s Old Testament. This ancient text describes the author’s process of finding meaning of one’s own existence. By describing his research and the conclusions he manages to arrive at, the author gives a testimony of his perception of the world as an ever-changing one, where no solution can be final – and yet, he seems to hold an opinion that the very act of searching can be the final answer in itself.
