The subject of control is addressed as an inescapable problematic, working with dislocated artistic tools in other cultures and communities. The totalitarian regime of perception crucially increases during the show, until control is released from the performer to the receiver in the final dance sequences, leaving the audience perceive without mediation.

This images are also from another project and reality. A 20 Light designers from Stockholm translated those phrases into a light for each phrase.
