With a subtle dark humour, Stephanie recounts this journey towards unknown icy lands, where memories of home and family lead to a possible forgiveness for the world's failures.

Choreographer Stéphanie Kayal and composer Abed Kobeissy rely on fiction for this attempt to come to terms with what they describe as hyperreality: “The performance take place in a parallel universe, where, following decades of crimes and corruption, a dancer antihero and her sidekick musician form a cheaply equipped and loosely organized crime-fighting couple to take revenge. With good intentions but no experience, they constitute a mediocre summary of the contemporary reality in Beirut.”
