“The thrill of flying high in the blue sky eventually kills me. My legs have been chained underground for a long time, robbing me of my ability to fly. No one can imprison, limit, or take away the dream of sunlight shining on my wings when I sleep. How wonderful it is to fly, to be free, and to enjoy freedom. With each passing day, the sweetness of free life and freedom fades under my tongue. Make a solution, oh you who can, that this spirit, who was full of the spirit to live and vivacious, is taking its last breaths.”
Tahera Rezaie

The story is set in troubled times. In 16th century London and in the present, people take to the streets out of fear of the stranger, are forced to flee for political and religious reasons.

Everything and everyone, figures, light, the fabric of the stage space, are in constant, often contrary movement in this performance. Visually and acoustically exuberant, it crosses centuries and continents... The events in the present are taken from the political situation in Afghanistan since the rule of the Taliban, specifically the oppression and lack of rights of women... Very different levels of style and language are mixed, everyday ones blur with poetic, metaphorical sequences, blur into each other like the concepts and images. what is modernity, what is truth ?... Dolomites 4/10/2022

We, the women with a passion for art and artistic fields, were constantly threatened and endangered in our everyday lives. From childhood, a dominantly male society took away all our basic rights. Even our own families were against us fulfilling our dreams. Fariba Baqueri, actress and director in franzmagazine 29.Sept 2022
