A sandy desert. Something begins to move. One ﬁligree, root-like hand unearths itself and is quickly followed by a second one. Yet the second hand seems to belong to a creature from another world … Am I the one that I am? – is the question that this act of creation in several parts, this work of invisible hands, seems to be posing. Cocoons, miniature worlds, dream images, a play without words – Cocon is about the cycle of dying and becoming, about homelessness, the need for protection and the pursuit of knowledge.
