What do an empty space and an exhausted body have in common? What should you do when it seems that your head is exploding and you have lost your heart? After the burnout, this is the starting point of this autobiographical solo. The emptiness of the stage is been used as an analogy of own perceived emptiness and step by step space as well as the body will be filled, ergo replenished.
This solo is presented exclusively on open-air stages, preferably in band shells. These architectures are often unoccupied as well and awaiting utilisation/invigoration. These venues are often in the neighbourhood of psychosomatic rehabilitative facilities that house potential audience members and individuals with expertise in this topic.
