Șelari 13, Bucharest, Romania

Improv night with broken word, solo soprano voice, a body in movement, non-verbal response to drone noise, and electronic synth.

Foreground stare

Middleground drops

Background lack of curtains

Foreground containers

Middleground trees and blocks

Background pink

Reflective surfaces

And blockage

A narrow line of shallow

And devastating air

Gates and blinds

Pins and straws
