Stories we have never told (performance)
Four characters, four people tell their stories with words, images, body and movement, in silence, without thinking about the consequences. Four different personalities too near to each other in both temporal and physical space, permeating each other, fighting for attention and intimacy. Irritated, as on a Sunday family?s lunch, they wish to find a story they have never told.
