Experiencing one’s parents’ divorce can have a profound effect on how a child perceives adult love and have consequences for its own choices later in life. Often children fight back and take on a very inappropriate role in bringing order to this chaos; a struggle that can cost them their own identity.
With a scenic idiom of poetic words, abstract movements and to the tones of classical music and The Doors, we want with love and respect, to tell a story about a family for whom it should not succeed in holding together.
