From Banishment to

Meeting with the Soul,

a Pilgrimage on Earth and…

group creation

directed by Juan Carlos De Petre

Two beings struggle to be one, in the essential communion between Man and Woman. Theatrically visual, figurative; an exquisite, intangible offering which one must decipher in confession with one’s own heart and in the intimacy of one’s own soul.
