When a camera rolls, the world bends and distorts to the edges of each lens, frame, and circumstance. In front of it, whether we like it or not, we always perform. This collection of shorts explores different layers of performance, dilating the question of how and for whom. Eventually, the answer is a reflection of ourselves and of course, to power. The distortion and proximity of the image, as crude as it may be, unveils a subconscious self: it is us. 

A monologue is performed in a building that inhabits the thickness of a borderline, reflecting on how free movement, free knowledge and free space are under threat.
