This multimedia artistic work, with video and live performance, focuses on exploring the distance that exists within the human being, between the true desire and the actual decision, between emotion and will, anticipation and redemption. Inspired by the traditional song from Smyrna ‘It is not yet dawn to wake up’, the play gradually reveals an event of loss, that has taken place in the past time (video) and is experienced simultaneously in the present time (live performance), by two identical women who live in two parallel space-times: in a natural landscape of the past and in a confined room of the present. The water becomes a caress, the air a whisper, the soil a percussion sound, the loved one a bittersweet song inside the room. Two selves who experience at the same time a loss and are searching for their own redemption, from a distance.
*The work includes phrases from the Third Act of the book “Two-faced monologues of loneliness” by Katerina Angelaki – Rook.
