Performance synopsis

Are we dreaming or is the wall for real? Are we shielded from the invisible hand of power? Is this screen our protection or does violence keep us behind bars? We broke out of the obsession with the ideals of freedom and living in the golden glow of the future - We awoke to a present that casts a shadow on us, follows our footsteps, makes us feel its breath on our necks. Principle for principle's sake, optimisation for better or for worse, a generation outgrowing itself, on oxygenless heights! Future is a battlefield!
