The subject ofthe piece is the “Experience of loosing” containing the taboos death and faith. Which one? It doesn’t matter which one, the essence is that something is lost forever. The audience could follow the way of the person changed by this happening, from loosing sense untill the harmony. The body led by the instincts and the lost soul becomes wild animal, floating and finally opens the way to the beauty in this world covered by cascade of inducements. How strong the soul can be in order to recover us.
There are moments in life when our whole life is gone in front of our eyes, from the most terrible moments to the most beautiful ones. The body goes dead, blood is boiling, all the things become senseless. And then once you leave. Brake and lack will stay but the soul becomes stronger and stronger and will be able to step to a new dimension, to accept and to become beautiful.
