Dark Skies (...) is a performance experiment on solitude inspired by the
biblical story of Jonah.
Starting from Emil Cioran’s statement: “One can experience loneliness in two ways: by feeling lonely in the world or by feeling the loneliness of the world.”, Under Dark Skies (...) is investigating the soft lines between loneliness and solitude; between obligation and desire; between restriction and freedom.
Escaping society could be the best thing that ever happened to J, only to find himself alone and captive in his own mind. Having to journey himself into understanding urban loneliness, he launches into his own being, discovering chaos before peace.
A story about understanding, reconstructing, and forgiving our modern society.
