From nowhere to nowhere
To dissolve in a softness of pause between two points
To find your being suspended in a silent fragile moment when time stops and words don't matter anything.
It is too short and too endless
It is too simple and too complicated
It is better not to do anything at all
How it is to be gone?
How it is to meet the universe?
How not to disturb?
Performance duration: 55 min (no break)
