Czech Showcase @ Fringe: DOT504 - You Are Not the One Who Shall Live Long

You are asked to explain a purpose, statement of intention and concept. But there is nothing. There is nothing to explain. Except for acceptance that what we do, and who we are, is in flux. Is what we do who we are? Or is what we do just a reaction? A look at features of political and social criticism and the obsession with satisfying our needs, whether it is love, sex or money.

Cast: Nathan Jardin (BE), Hyaejin Lee (KR), Pavel Mašek (CZ), Knut Vikstrøm Precht (SE)
