The construction of suspense as an aesthetic and narrative procedure.

"When a dream dies, a lot of blood flows..." is a challenge, a provocation.
The piece offers the public a journey through the folds of stage suspense - an unusual genre in contemporary dance - and invites them to enter the dark places of uncertainty.

Nobody knows how dreams die.
Yet we know they bleed when they die.

Two characters. A place. A briefcase. A jar. And what happens between them.
