Every legend has a starting point, whether it be based on a real event or one that is purely fictional.


Onstage, the character unfurls their feathers, allowing their body to speak and their thoughts to flow freely. This marks the beginning of a journey deep into the soul, where memories, dreams, and echoes of tales once heard come to life. Through a kaleidoscope of colors, emotions, and moods, the audience is taken on a thrilling rollercoaster ride that reflects the highs and lows of life. This captivating solo performance delves into themes of identity and self-discovery, blending dance, theater, and film to create a mythical coming-of-age narrative that follows the trials and tribulations of pursuing one's dreams. In this never-ending process of transformation and becoming whole, nothing is ever truly complete.
