THE DRAIN describes the moment when all of the news he is exposed to become too much and he needs to let everything flow out, just like a blocked drain. The performance balances between creative performance [...]
At the beginning, it was all unified, firm and vast. As time went on, it began to crumble ― scattering like the laughter of toothless technicians, taunting the director who had just spilled his coffee. After the last piece had fallen off, it was all brought together once again.
