– A theatrical piece on the fragility of life and the endless games played by humanity.

The current of being has two defined points; birth and death, both a mystery to our understanding. As a new-born child we have no knowledge of why we were born, suddenly we are here. Later in life we understand the mechanics of how life comes to be but we never fully understand or even remember how we came to be. Later in life the process of degeneration in the body tells us that we will not be here forever, a darkness awaits similar to the one we came from.
