The performance MASS focuses on investigation of self-assurance and self-determination themes. It examines the ways and means that we use to make our own reality and ourselves in the context of today’s society. What do we consider to be important and determining for our existence and functioning? How do we look upon ourselves and judge? What means help us to be true to ourselves and to fulfill expectations? We are the mass, influenced by the reflections, and even if we try hard to be original we still become unified within the bodies of other beings.
