You have certainly stared at the clouds

while lying on a hill,

through the car window on a long trip,

or while you were sitting on a wall.

And you’ve certainly seen shapes of things in the clouds,

that aren’t made of clouds:

dog heads,

thorn-tailed dragons,


or the letter your name begins with.

What you probably never asked yourself


what do the clouds see, how they see it,

and what shapes of things they see in us,

that we aren’t made of us.


Lying on the stage, we set eyes on a performance yet to be finished. We assume the role of clouds and after we see it all, we sit with the actors and authors to define together a show that will be presented in the future. A performance installation, with an experimental character that allows the audience to participate in a work in progress.
