Performance synopsis

Each day, every one of us constantly looks for the beauty in life: in art, relationships, love. We put hope in new occurrences, people and emotions. By establishing relationships, we open ourselves to others, we invite them to our world, we become defenseless. We often experience disappointment, and suffer – consequently losing our faith that beauty exists at all.
