A Devised Piece Directed by Simón Adinia Hanukai and
Written by Anita Kirpalani and Saviana Stanescu. Through word, movement and video, the piece weaves together three interdependent narratives: a young Romanian man and his newborn daughter on a 25-year journey into the once forbidden West after the bloody regime of Nicolae Ceauescu is swept away with the fall of the Iron Curtain; a pair of construction workers dispatched to slice up the world with a multitude of new walls; and fantastical administrators, the masterminds behind this caustic quest of brick and mortar.

The story takes us on a journey from the once blaring promise of "freedom", sounded by the West in 1989, to the ever more divided world of today.
