An individual goes through an emotional state in his life between 34 - 35. Changes, transformation, happiness, loneliness, success, mourning. We will go deep inside his mind seeing his moods how they live together, as if it was a tale story
Walking City talks, criticises and makes fun of the rat-race in which we live in the big cities, we journey through every day life stopping to contemplate different characters and situations, inviting the audience to reflect on their own reality.
This piece explores and penetrates the innermost emotions processed by a human being. It is a struggle in between heart, mind and body.
