"The stage poses many hardships on the dancers but only there, rather than in broad light, can the otherness in all its shapes be fully represented"
Ora Brafman | Dance Talk
Three go into battle. They are determined to deconstruct and reconstruct ancient images engraved in their bodies and souls since childhood. Their battle for otherness is bloody. The guilt feelings that permeate are poisonous. They are expected to adjust at all costs. The sacrifice grows into an ulcer that seeks to discharge its pus and be cured. In hope and desire to celebrate new possibilities they try to look back at their past with compassion and compliance.
Dealing with all these challenges the characters walk on a thin line between the comic and the tragic as the fluid movement between ages, worlds and gender is revealed.
