Strangers in the night

Associate artist | World Premiere | Co-production Oriente Occidente

Dreamlike and subterraneously political, Strangers in the Night was created with the intent of combining social realism with tragicomic writing, inviting reflection on the present and, perhaps, the coming future, through dark, biting humour. Seriously ironic, this work inspired by The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, speaks the language of defeat to talk about hope, of decadence awaiting rebirth, of the fall that comes before standing up again. How do we survive emptiness, ourselves, and loneliness?
