The production is based on three surrealistic texts of Alberto Giacometti: “Yesterday, Flying sand”,
“A blind man reaches out the hand in the night…” and “The dream, the Sphinx and the death of T.”
as well as an epilogue from: “Paris without an end”.

Three texts – three generations – three dimensions.
An approach in spoken and written words,
drawn and danced lines, figures, sounds and plaster castings,
shells and stones.

The production is inspired by Giacomettis sculptures, drawings and texts to create a visual poem on its own.
His work is the starting point, like trails, which leads to a new place. An invisible place appears where visual
and performing arts unite with literature.
