Weaves together several strands: a writer struggling with his inability to come to terms with reality, the story of Ahmed and the metaphorical door, interwoven in a choreographic tapestry. Ahmed symbolises hope for a better tomorrow, his untimely death leaving a lasting mark, while the door lover serves as a conduit to the unknown, challenging our perceptions. Inspired by Robert Burns’ poem My Heart’s in the Highlands, our choreography reflects a longing for the mountains, where freedom and natural beauty reign supreme. Incorporating Jean Baudrillard’s notion of seduction, we explore the elusive nature of desire and the quest to transcend conventional production processes. Our performance invites the audience to abandon boundaries and embark on a journey into the vastness of the desert and the imagination. Through an ecological lens, we question the paradigm of productivity within the realm of entertainment. The stage, adorned with worn wooden house doors, serves as a poignant reminder of transition and passage.
