Experiencing Interruptions?

Metamorphosis: Dancing on my Own

Would a blank space narrate the personal conflicts of a young woman who is seeking her individual development? Would an almost inexistent architecture answer our more profound desires? Would traditional objects be the answer to our doubts just if we see them differently? In the imaginary reality of ‘Metamorphosis’, the main character will face all these matters while naturally, she starts to create an identity from her more profound being – her alter ego. In this dialogue between her multiple personalities, the main character finds what she desires, after facing the disputes and desperation auto exploration implies. Identify yourself through each step this young woman takes in her trip with no return and experiment with her hidden pleasures. ‘Metamorphosis’ is waiting for you.
