To fall into one’s soul and to search around its content, to step out of oneself and to search for another person within, to open one’s mind and to wander around boundless space. A choreography loosely inspired by Jack London’s novel The Star Rover in which the central character, tied in a jacket, sedates his body so as to stimulate his soul. This enables him to wander through boundless space made of other people’s lives and to get to know the soul of mankind. It is a story of freedom and spiritual power and their capacity of overcoming all wretchedness of body and flying up to the stars.
