A meditative dance and sound piece, the context of which will be expanded by an exhibition of photographs and interview excerpts accompanying the concert. The dramaturgical basis of the performance consists of conversations with the residents of Kuliai town: what do they think about most often, what is silence for them and whether it is possible these days, when the world is so troubled.
