Performance synopsis

The performance focusses on male-female relationships in the modern world. My intent is to present a number of short stories, each with a man and woman as the respective protagonists; some are shown with a grain of salt, others are as serious as it gets. I wish to ask the audience about the place we have found ourselves in and our expectations of relationships, whether romantic or interpersonal in general.
