This is a little story for two. A whispered song of intimacy and nostalgia. Through grotesque and delicate vocabulary at the same time, the duet explores the effort we make to remain resilient.
When does this party finish? We fight to save our beauty under a disco ball that never stops. There’s no destiny but only this moment. There’s no story big enough to contain all our memories; because of that we forget. Are they watching us or are we watching them? We stand here still and strong. When the breath is short I see you with my eyes closed. I never told you if you saved me.
