A man and a woman speak in their own voices, as well as in the imagined thoughts of the other, even ventriloquising each other till the almost bare stage seems populated with voices.  A tale without caution, caught in several acts.  Gender and power shift and subvert.  Language flows, cadences, crystallizes, shatters. 
With Ignacio Garcia-Bustelo and Alenka Kraigher
