The "Healers" team is on a mission to detect and remove the problems, unresolved issues, emotional and energetic stagnations that might have been accumulating in the walls of the space where this performance takes place. In this case, Studio 1 at the premises of Uferstudios is under close examination: What history has this place, and how does it cope with its current function of the theater/performance space?
In this choreographic endeavor, by combining fiction with historical-documentary elements, the ground for subtle humor is being created, that is an artistic gesture with which the desire for different visions and imaginations of the world we live in is called upon.
