The perversity of fortunes, which is called reality, is a flux of various interpretations or even creations of human mind.

 I would've been a palm tree
there are dreams about a journey into an exotic world; about another, different, dreamlike life. In reality we face motionless, static life which is all the time rooted at one point only.
In this reality we try to find a way which unites dreams and reality.

*The performance, which can also work as an installation, shows movement (dance) that is all the time located at one place – it is “hooked” into the center of the space, however, it continuously deals with the space around it.
