“Everything must be lived”
This is a story about a person who feels nothing. This is about sometimes you need to crash into the wall to feel at least something. And this is about that pain can be a great trigger to this.
What makes us wear polyethylene armor that will protect us from the whole world?
What is the strongest feeling that can burst this bubble?
And how many times do you need to hit the wall in order to feel at least something?
During a frivolous performance, I want to ask serious questions and give one of many possible answers.

!No walls were harmed during this performance!
