Desolate dreams


She's a red as her urges for him.

He's as white as his mechanism fighting.

She's as blue as her thoughts wandering around.

They're as beautiful as the timeless dreams they have.

Desolate Dreams is an installation-performance researching the lonely identity. Does an individual still create an identity when he or she is alone? 

The three performers each embody one of the three personality aspects Freud defined as the id, the ego and the superego. They take you on a journey into a desolate dreamworld searching for who they are.
