“Teatr ROBIMY” theatre

Crisis. Change. Unwanted pregnancy. The daughter is 24 years old, pregnant, does not study nor have money. The need to return. To her father’s house, where he was drilling human teeth every day in the room next to her. Return to memories, dreams, ideas. She watches from the level of the terrarium where her father keeps zygentoma. These insects, which convert cellulose into biofuel. The ones that were supposed to save the world from disaster. She watches her father, mother and herself from years ago. She meets her inner child. A bit human, a bit non-human, but kind of capable to feel. She interferes. Boom. Provocation, climax, disaster.

When you don’t know what to do, you have to let it go. ZEN_ITH.
