No eloquence could have been so withering to one’s belief in mankind as his final burst of sincerity. - Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness
In this solo dance piece, Dániel Szász enacts a strange psychoanalytic session without a conductor, in reverse. The ultimate goal is freedom, to get rid of the image others form about us—an image which, ultimately, is something we create ourselves. Seeking the self is rife with unknown perils. The end of the journey may turn out to be the loss of the self. For there is something down there, in the unbridled, barbaric sincerity of instincts, something still holding out the promise of setting us free. But is there a way back to the surface from such depths?
