Fragments of a mind

Focus Circus Next

This piece is about a man in a place that is both somewhere and nowhere at the same time. We do not know who he is, or how he came there. We just get to observe his journey of self-discovery and his search for purpose in this strange world he finds himself in. A bare room – except for an old music box and some round inanimate objects. The lone character moves in endless circles. Time passes slowly. Our only reference point is a haunted voice singing the same song over and over. Upon repeatedly confronting himself and his own sanity he falls deeper and deeper into darkness as he fights to find some sort of proof of his own existence.
