Two immersive plays in one Night

<THE GREY LIFE> a walk on the particles…

Every day we wake up and we open the window to start our day…

watch the sun …

take a breath and think about the amazing things we will do on that day.

But when you wake up and outside it’s Grey…your mood will change, just a little bit .. but it will change… and if it happens for more days to follow your mood will change a lot even if you think it isn’t affecting you.

People could say…”Beijing is polluted”… but: “the World is polluted”. We produce, we buy, we throw away, we spend, we want, we pretend and we are never ever satisfied…

How are we running this world?

Why are we destroying it?

Now we are living in the Globalized World’s Black Mirror.

<RELATIONSHIP> a way to grow up and find your world

From the day that we were born we learn, we separate the right from the wrong and we try to understand who we are and what we want.

The people we meet on our life’s journey will give us trouble and will teach us solutions. They will help us to understand ourselves better when we look at them as a mirror of ourselves.

Sometimes you will feel wrong because somebody tells you: “you dream too much” and you believe it. Other times you will find people encouraging  you..and you will feel to be right.

Any relationship is a present giving us the chance to understand our fears, our abilities and our courage.
